A Shawl, A Scarf and some other stuff too!

Well it's time to show off some of my finished projects!

First is a shawl I made for an exchange on one of my groups. I really like the way it came out. I intend on making one of these for myself soon! I used A Pound of Love in Antique White - I used about 3/4 of the skein. The pattern has a lovely name and is available at Magnificent Mantle

This first view is how it looks in the front:

And this second view is how it looks in the back - a full across view.

Next is a cute little scrubbie. It can be used for your face or your dishes! I love dual purposes items! I made it with crochet cotton called Blue Ocean. You can find the pattern at Scrubbie. The pattern works up fast!

Next are a couple of dishcloths from Maggie Weldon. They can both be found at Maggie's Crochet. You will have to look through the list of dishcloths - she is offering one a day I believe for a year! I worked both in Peaches and Cream cotton. The first one is called Cross Stitch Dishcloth in Maroon color and the second is called Heart Dishcloth worked in Maroon and White. I'm sorry to say but both dishcloth patterns had a few - well I'll call them issues - with the pattern directions so I did make a few adjustments for both patterns to work for me.

Next is a little item that was supposed to be a coaster - but to me it worked up more the size of a small doily - so I am going to use it that way. It was a pattern for testing I did so it isn't yet available. I crocheted it in #10 thread in soft green.

Next is an adorable, if I say so myself, Baby Blanket. I did it Bernat Baby Sport Yarn in Pink Rose. I used the Large skeins of 1077 yards - one full skein and about 2/3 of the second skein. This is a gift that my heart sister, Martha asked me to make for her new niece! The pattern can be found at Bev's Country Cottage.

And finally, an item I am most proud of making. It is a Luna Lovegood Scarf. Yes, Luna from Harry Potter. It is done in the colors of her house - Ravenclaw! And the yarn I got from Etsy - the creator called it Looney Loves Good Yarn! I love it! I made it for my heart sister, Martha. But trust me I got enough yarn to make one for myself too! The pattern can be found at Luna Lovegood Scarf and the yarn is from Neurotic Knitterz on Etsy I so wish the picture was cleaner and sharper - but if you look at the links for it - both the yarn and the pattern - you will see how beautiful it is with better photos!

That is it for now - so I'm back to the crochet hook to work on more!
