The snow is almost gone. There are little piles of it here and there, but for the most part it’s all melted. I’m sad to see it go, but it’s nice to take a trip into town without fear of black ice. Plus, after the second day, everything turned to slush and mud. Yuck.
Since the roads were clear, I finally had the chance to give away the Crochet Half Moon Shawl. My friend Ellen had a big smile when she saw it. Sorry, but I didn’t get a picture. I forgot the camera in the car (oops). It really looks great on her though!
Forum-wise, I never did get an answer from the Crochetville CAL about the mismatched corners. Seems like I caught the very tail end of the Half Moon Shawl craze, since there was only one response. Maybe it’ll pick up again?
So, now I’ve got shawl fever. I’m searching for new patterns at the moment, but nothing has caught my eye. I think I’ll find a vintage pattern or maybe try the Seraphina, but I’m not sure yet.
