Crochet projects 2017

The holidays are here and I thought it was a long time since I had done anything remotely crochet. I was going to crochet something.

Girlybunches had just this morning posted her new video on how to crochet the virus shawl as she called it. It looked lovely, from what I could see of it.

So I started crocheting with her watching her on youtube. As usual, I didn’t have enough yarn of one colour, so decided to use as many colours as I could and use up those bits of yarn and those bundles for which I could never find good use for.

A few rows later, I came to find out that Olivia from Girlybunches had only posted the patter for the first 11 or so rows. And she had posted a link to the written pattern which looked like a complicated mathematical design to me.

A net search told me that Joana Martinez had also a pattern for the virus shawl and so I went there and it was a lot clearer there.

So here I am crocheting my shawl, which I hope will add to my collection of warm clothes to protect me against the cold air of the Air Con in my office and also for me take on my trip to Boston next month.IMG_2993.JPGIMG_2995.JPG

Do you like it ? For those of you interested in crochet, it seems to be an easy and beautiful project to do.

      1. It’s beautiful Susie. I thank God for YouTube also. I always wanted to cook scallops, but had no idea how to do it. Watched three videos on YouTube…combined them, and they were delicious. My husband is picky, and he loved them too.

  1. Ohhh Susie! This is just delectable. I love the colours – it’s kind of warm and fun and sweet and inviting. Like wearing a smile around your shoulders. Perfect.

    Well done Susie. It’s a really GREAT project, and you’ll look lovely in it.

      1. Hi Susie, I have been deciding what to do about blogging. I have run out of ideas, after a point storing photos on WordPress costs money, so I was thinking of searching through my posts and having a digest of sort for the month with links to posts that might be a blessing to someone…good tips, recipes, etc. I’ve started almost half a dozen blogs on Blogger and deleted them all. I think I am blogged out and this new idea might be a way to still be out there without paying for the photos or coming up with new ideas.

      2. Hi Susie, I have an Instagram account but hardly use it. I don’t have the phone that automatically connects so to use it I have to upload from the computer by an app called Gramblr. I am going to begin going through back posts with the thought of deleting some posts that aren’t pertinent anymore. They are several current events that aren’t current anymore. That might give me more room. It’s a thought! Thanks for the good ideas. Kathy
