Riddle me this... if April showers bring May Flowers, what do May Flowers bring?
It's hard to see in this first photo, but all along the edge, there are crocheted flowers... the main reason I wanted to try this pattern.
I wasn't sure I'd like the triple crochet body, but the cotton gives it a good feel.
I also crocheted a Jane Austen Shawl this week... really more of a stole in it's long rectangular shape. Great for the shoulders or wrapping in a variety of styles. This yarn is a cotton/linen blend. The linen should help keep that lacy structure.
It's 'blocking' in this photo... washed and stretched out on rubber mats to dry nice and flat with all the stitches spread out. Those of you who have seen this room, know that this means the shawl is about 9 feet long!
Each band has all 14 glyphs, but I rotated the second band so that all 14 glyphs were visible from each side.
I might need to go shopping so I can use it. :oP
But, don't tell my grandsons we had to sacrifice Lightning McQueen to get them!
I'm working on a Minnie bag and a Tink bag for Christy's nieces who we hope will be joining them at Disneyland in June.
Otherwise, the month of May was filled with various socks, bags, scarves, and gloves.
Oh, all right, I'll show you my favorite pair of socks - I guess when I am an old woman, I'll wear purple, and blue and red and, well, you get the idea.
Oh, by the way... the answer to the riddle? Pilgrims! Mayflowers bring pilgrims. What, you don't remember 3rd grade? :oP
