The Yarn Has Taken Over!

Oh My!
The Yarn Has Taken Over My Life!
Seriously. . all I want to do is crochet this yarn.
And that is pretty much all I have done for the last month
Or More!
I have completed this beautiful shawl for my
Great-Auntie Colleen. . .
Sorry you don't see the full view of it.
It is beautiful and I know she is going to love it.
I started out with a pattern. . .but
I adapted it to what I wanted.
Believe me I need directions, but I must say
This turned out pretty.
And just look at this beautiful amaryllis
It just keeps blooming. . this is the 4th bloom
It must know that I need some kind of hope for Spring.
It has been a long hard winter for me. . .
So I just keep crocheting.
I will show you more in a few days.
Oh that darn Yarn is calling me!
Come back. ..

  7. You did a wonderful job on this shawl - I live in Colorado but I am from Yorktown, Virginia and was born in Hampton. My parents - elderly - live in Gloucester.

  8. I need to apologize - I thought you were from
    Virginia which is why I said the above comment.


I read each comment and I appreciate the time you spend to leave me one. Thank you so much.
