Crochet Vests , Sweaters and Shawls
I bought a fantastic pattern from Drew Emborsky, his blog is http://thecrochetdude.blogspot.com, a fellow crochetter that is very creative as well. So works in progress are vests, sweaters, Dachshund Heidi, maybe some hats and some doillies.
Here is a shawl I made for a lady in Arizona. The Ruffled Peacock Shawl, in a pineapple crochet. If you want to buy the book, is a Leisure Arts Publication. You can find a geat deal on this book at Amazon.Com, the ISBN 0-942237-63-3, starting at $3.65 what a deal. I altered the pattern to make space for a broche button that I thought would add a real classy and vintage look to it. The Spaniard Ladies would have used these garments, when it got a little chilly during the fall and winter nights in the "New World" . The New World meaning the Americas as they are known today.
I have to have many projects at once, because I like to do lots of things and multitask. I also have to see how my neuropathy is that day. Some of the projects are more hard on my body than others and I can only work for one hour and rest for two or more.
As you can see I have some Needlecraft webring that I have joined. It's very exciting to see how much creativity is out there and how many people show their work on the Internet. Please come back and visit, leave your comments and share the magic of working with needles. Shalom!
