I started my Lost in Time Shawl at the end of September, when I finally gave in to temptation and bought a Scheepjes whirl.
I made excellent progress through October, until my whirl got to look like this around the beginning of November.
We were away a lot of November and I didn’t dare take it with me for fear of getting the remaining yarn in an enormous knot. In December I was on a mission to finish LH’s Christmas Sweater and create a few Christmas presents. But finally I got back to it a few days before Christmas. I finished it on Christmas eve, but have only just found a moment to photograph it.
I haven’t blocked it, because it’s just too cold and damp, but I’m hoping the top edge will even out a bit more when I do. Even if it doesn’t, this is only my second crochet shawl, so I’m not worrying about it. However if anyone has any advice, beyond keep practising, I’d be very grateful for anything that helps improve my crochet.
If your familiar with the Lost in Time pattern, you’ll know that this isn’t the way the boarder should be, but I didn’t have quite enough yarn to do a full last set of repeats and the shawl would have been too small if I’d stopped at the end of the set of repeats before.
All I need to work out now is what my next crochet project will be. Both Lynn at Tialys and Shelia at Sewchet are tempting me with the Persian Tiles blanket. Anyone else got anything to tempt me with?
