Shawls are not for grannies anymore.  Any and everyone can wear a shawl not only to keep warm but as a fashion statement.  Shawls don’t have to be boring and you can make one in any length by adding or deleting rows and adding embellishments.

With the Caron Cakes craze check out my post about the yarn here.  I wanted to use one cake because some of the colors are hard to find and I also wanted something short that could be worn as a kerchief.  The actual pattern is on Ravelry by Cre8tion Crochet called Shawl We?  Lorene is one of my favorite top 2 crochet designers.

Caron Cakes are exclusively sold at Michaels.  Premier also has one out now called Sweet Roll in 25 different colors and it’s 100% acrylic yarn unlike Caron Cakes that has some wool in it.  Sweet Roll’s are sold at AC Moore at Joann’s now.  After working with both yarns it’s hard to say which one I like best.  They both serve my crocheting needs.

I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn.

If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much.

To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.
