Breakfast shawl

Because row 4 repeated was too much of an increase, I changed it up. Used my own pattern after that. I'm sure someone could figure it out, I couldn't. 

Yes, a knot in the roll that was too easy to pull apart.
Became a UFO and I couldn’t remember the stitch I changed it to. So I added chain loops and an edging and finished off.

Big Game Mystery Make-Along 2018 Crochet

This 2018 mystery a long was a good one. I tried the 2019, but knew something was up that I wouldn't be able to finish. I won't post the 2019 on here. I think from now on, I'll wait until the mystery is done if there's no picture of the item prior to starting.

One day project.

I used the Jumbo and so I only had 2 ends to weave in. It’s all in one piece. It’s white, but I have no sun today.

Hook 5.5 mm (I)
Yarn Red Heart Super Saver Solids Jumbo
Weight Worsted (9 wpi)
How much? 0.85 skeins = 632.4 yards (578.3 meters)
Colorway White
Color family White

A finished picture and some in progress:

It ended up being a joined shawl into a cowl type. I was thinking it might work good as a shawl without the joining and the cowl. I never did that, but it was always in my mind as I was making it. Maybe repeat some of the last round or just wing it.

Road Trip Scarf in Christmas Colors

I made two fun little gift bags with this yarn. Turned out super cute in my opinion. The items are on my blog here: https://debbia1.blogspot.com/2017/08/christmas-in-july.html

So I had a lot of left over yarn. Thought I'd try a simple shawl.


Lots of pooling and ugliness resulted. I suppose it's fine worn around the neck in the cold winter. Or as an "ugly Christmas item" instead of a sweater or maybe even sewn onto a sweater. But it's not my favorite and I've never worn out of the house because I've never had the occasion to (or wanted to).

I wrote about the pattern here and it looks great in other yarns: https://debbia1.blogspot.com/2019/07/spirit-road-trip-scarf.html
