Table Runner

I finally did Ila's Table Runner. I ended making a mistake in the center web. I did not discover it until I had the first spiral side done. Somehow I ended up making 11 sections in the web instead of 10. I had to compensate on were to start the second spiral. There was no way I was going to tear the project apart.

Not Just Yarn

I had spent most of my morning doing origami. It is mostly ninja stars and cranes.  When my son was younger, he use to tear apart the church bulletin to make ninja stars. 

The blanket below is an ongoing project. It is done in Afghan stitch around the outer edge. It is a little hard to explain on how it is done. It is 5 stitches attaches around the outer edge of the blanket. I do not know yet on how large it will be. I am using up my scraps for this project.

I have been obsessed with making these feathers. I have them everywhere all over my house. I found the pattern to make these on Pinterest. Here is the video and pattern to make them.
 The video and instructions are in Spanish, but there is a diagram to help.

Crochet Triangle Shawl

I can't believe it has been a while since I posted anything. I have completed out many projects that include a knitted t-shirt, crocheted feathers, a sock doll made from an old sock, and a teddy bear I intend to give to my granddaughter. You can find my finished projects in Instagram and Facebook.

So onto my latest completed project. This project can to be after a co-worker wanted clarification on pattern stitch she found on Pinterest, which was a simple "dc, ch1 in a ch1 space pattern". It was a square/ rectangular pattern, but I thinking it would make a great triangle shawl by doing increases at the ends. 

This particular shawl I used 2 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a size J hook, but any size hook and yarn could be used.  So here is the pattern:

Chain 5, dc in the first chain. Turn.
Row 1: Ch 4, dc in the first dc (increase made), ch 1, dc in the next space, ch 1, dc in the third chain from the beginning ch 5 (increase made). Turn.
Row 2: Ch 4, dc in the first dc , [ch 1, dc in the next ch 1 space] repeat across all ch1 spaces, dc in the 3rd chain of ch 4 of the previous row.

Repeat row two until desired size of shawl. An alternative to doing a dc in turning chain at the end is to do the final dc in the last ch1 space.

Love Knot Shawl

Using up my scraps, I made up this shawl using the Solomon knot. I changed colors every row leaving about a 3 inch tail on the ends for fringe. This at I did not have to sew in the ends. I used a single crochet on the ends to secure in place. Right now it is hanging over my computer chair.

I also finished up a doily that you can find on my Instagram account. I usually post pictures of finished projects and WIPs on my Instagram account first. I used my Round Granny Ripple pattern to make the doily.

I had used Shawl in a Ball to make this shawl. I felt that one ball was not bid enough, but I did wear this shawl using a broach to secure the shawl around my neck.
