on with the shawl!

I finished my pound of handcarded, 2 ply, light worsted border leister wool. I was a little hesitant about spinning and hand carding so much yarn, but really it went by pretty fast.


I had a private crochet lesson at my LYS to get me going on the Fourth-Generation shawl from the winter Spin Off. I am a novice in crochet, but once I got going (and a few false starts) this is a really easy pattern.

I'm starting to like crochet more and more, and it really has a possibility to help it eat some of my excess stash quickly. Crochet I have learned usually takes up more yards then knitting, which fr us a bit overburdened in the yarn closet can be a relief.

I've really been wanting to learn to crochet. It will be fun to watch your shawl progress.

Nice yarn. Crochet is fun and fast. Looks like you are doing a good job. Have fun.
