Finished Lattice Work Shawl + two More

This shawl is made with regular worsted weight (4 ply) yarn.  Only about 1/2 the cost of making one with the lovely Lion Brand Homespun yarn --- this was made with Caron "by the pound"  yarn (see photo below) and used up the whole one pound of yarn for a cost of about $7.00 total.  I will try a few other yarns and patterns to try to keep the cost down.

 I was able to put the finishing touches on two more shawls -- hard to photograph the true colors, but there are both very pretty colors. The one without fringe would be most appropriate for a man -- in lovely desert colors and no fringe.  The cotton candy parfait color is 
really much prettier than the photo shows.

June already ---

Boy, the time flies by.
I do stay busy -- with lots of things -- lately, crocheting has been my main "crafty" thing to do. Lots of prayer shawls finished --- photos of a couple more I have finished -- and a pic of the pink one I am working on right now.  It is a different pattern and fun to do.  I have it about half way finished.

Also I worked on "pocket prayer" shawls.  These are mini-shawls.
  Email me if you would like more information on the pocket prayer shawls
I think by the time I quit for a bit, there were 75 of them in all.
Most have been gifted already.

Three more finished shawls -- love the pink parfait yarn that Lynn S. sent to me.  It made up a gorgeous shawl and was sent to a lovely lady who is undergoing chemo .

Cool blues, lavendar, touch of pink -- very soothing colors.

The red is a bit unusual, but everyone needs a splash of color.
