I Resolve

I really, really want to learn to crochet. Yes, I do. As a result of Gingy giving me a lesson in crochet at today's Spin-in, I resolve to crochet for at least 10 minutes per day until I finish my first project. So, here's the result of my first attempt when I got home:I've dubbed this my summer of shawls, so naturally, I've started hooking a simple shawl using chain, single crochet and double treble crochet stitches. I'm using some Sanguine Gryphon yarn I picked up last summer in Seasock Fuzzy Navel. Very happy colorway. Whatcha think so far?

Speaking of The Sanguine Gryphon...our dear Gryphon hosts a spin-in every month (I know, how lucky are we?), and of course, the afternoon is never complete without a little shopping.

Sarah dyed these beauties in Little Traveller. The tones remind me of summer, beaches, seaglass. Oh, how I love summer. Are you wondering what I shall knit with this? Why, a shawl, of course.


  1. Fabulous! Best picture of me ever. We will have to get together soon. I'm always to pleased when I walk in somewhere and you're there.

  2. I can't wait to see your crochet project in person. I can crochet but I just don't like it that well.

    And so shopping is the reason for going to G's? Let me know if you will be going to this month's. Hopefully I will be in town since I am supposed to head up to Boston at some point this month.
