Happy Mother's Day!
This is the shawl I made for my mom, along with a couple other goodies. She asked me a while ago to make her one and I've been working on it ever since. I started over several times, changing colors, changing yarns and then finally deciding to crochet it instead of knit!
This is only the second thing I have completed in crochet. I made a couple of pins before but that was it. Now I know what you're thinking "Hey, this is the Nuckin' Futs Knitters blog, not the Nuckin' Futs Crocheter blog!" But I assure you my first love is still knitting, however I do enjoy branching out and trying different crafts. Crocheting isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
The first time I tried to learn to crochet I just didn't get it. I was teaching myself and all of the books and YouTube video's I tried weren't helping. So I tossed my crochet hook aside and said "The hell with that!" That was about six years ago.
When I gave it another try last year it finally made sense to me. :) This wrap is just a basic rectangle shape and I added scalloped edges to the sides and fringe on the ends. I haven't seen my mom yet today to give it to her but I really hope she likes it! I will be attempting to write out a pattern for it (all my pattern notes look like crazy scribble) so check back if you would like to give this wrap a try.
See ya later!
