Suzon Shawl -- Finito

 I finished my "Suzon Shawl" a couple of weeks ago and am quite satisfied with it. I blogged about it here .
 I finished the shawl with my favorite edging. Details are here.  This is the first shawl I've made for myself. I look forward to wrapping up in it with a good book when cooler arrives, though I'm not in a hurry to do that!! Lovin' summer and green, green, green.


I sent 10 wash cloths and 10 bars of soap to the Batesland School on the Oglala Lakota Pine Ridge Reservation in SD. If you are interested in charity knitting, visit Giving Artfully for a list of charities that may draw your interest. There is a Ravelry Group, as well.
Wishing you a lovely weekend.


Chèche à la sauce Shawl

 It looks like a sweet little frilly shawl for someone in a nursing home, so I added ties to help keep the shawl in the right position. It's rather frilly and fussy, but I know someone will be blessed by it.  I made it for the Prayer Shawl Ministry at our church using the "Chèche à la sauce" pattern available here.
 The shawl is crocheted using Aran yarn and a size H crochet hook. While I'm not crazy about this yarn for this project and think the pattern would be prettier in a different yarn, I had to use acrylic for this ministry project. I changed the border, added picot edging, and made the shawl longer than the pattern directions. It is a quickie project that I completed in less than a week.
