Hello Again

I am more than a little shocked to discover so much time has gone by since I last posted! January? Really? Ah, well at least there's always the opportunity to start again.

When last we spoke I was a renter. Now, I am a home owner! Thanks to the real estate market and the first time home buyer funds from the government I now own a lovely little condo. WOOT!

So, let's see, crochet... what do I have to report... Um, how about this?

It was started way back in November around Thanksgiving and just recently finished. Why? My sister took off for the winter and was not around to decide on the size or border. I still love this Mock Faroese pattern by Lily Chin. It is simply perfect for those yarns with long color repeats. I'm pleased to say she loves it and so does her husband. High praise indeed!

This make the third time I've crocheted this pattern and I am certain it will not be the last. Speaking of patterns stitched more than once, I'll have another to share next time.

Here's hoping everyone has been enjoying their stitching while I've been absent. I look forward to catching up with all of you! TTFN - Gigi

Time just seems to fly by, doesn't it? Glad you're back to blogging. That's a beautiful shawl, but that's no surprise! :^)
