Hi all, I hope everyone had a great long weekend! Mine has been very relaxing and lazy. I did manage to complete the Tunisian Crochet Wingspan Shawl I was working on, I started it back in May using the loom knit version, this is my post about it. It was turning out way smaller than I wanted it to so I frogged it and started over with different yarn. I finished it today! I handwashed it, dryed it till just damp in the dryer and blocked it on my bed

I was real happy with that, so I steamed each triangle and now they don’t curl!

Crystal doesn’t look very happy, she stopped by and I snagged her to be my model! I love the shawl, I think it is pretty and it was so fun to make! Headed to my son’s for dinner. Ya’ll have a great evening.

Good morning all, I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. Mine has been pretty good, this afternoon I will be going to the movies ( I haven’t been in a couple of years) I am going with the kids and we are seeing Star Trek Into Darkness http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1408101/ it should be fun.

Lately I have been having a lot of pain in my right hand especially if I crochet, so I am taking a little break from it and have been loom knitting lately. The project I chose is the lovely Wingspan Shawl. This shawl has a pattern available for needle knitting ( original ) one for loom knitting and one also in tunisian crochet. It was offered as a class last year in LoomClass http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoomClass/?yguid=219940051 and I didn’t have time to make it then. Later I came across the tunisian version and wanted to try that too. I have the pattern and will try it in the future when my hand problem is gone. Here are links to all 3 versions
