Yarn Along

The topic of conversations around here on Wednesdays has always been knitting
 - all you need are two sticks and some string -
Now that I am crocheting, yes I am crocheting
 - it's one hook and some string -

This is what I am making...

The Farm Girl Shawl by my good friend Liz
Liz designed this pattern and she taught the class I took on Friday.

This is the yarn I am using, hand dyed, it is beautiful!! am I doing you ask...

not bad.

The stitches themselves and the base of the shawl are easy, peasy,
the ends, are tight and difficult.
It's not that I don't know what to do, it's just so tight and so difficult to see the stitches,
I am really struggling...with that part only!!

So I am grateful to have come this far already.
Liz is an amazing teacher, so patient and kind, she even sent me a text later that night.

"You did great today! 
Just take your time with it, and I am confident that you can do it!
Don't hesitate to ask me questions"

I'm so lucky to have such kind people/friends in my life!
