National Crochet Month: Shibaguyz CAL
So, even though it’s not actually National Crochet Month here in the UK, I decided to take part and so far it’s going well.
I joined up on Ravelry (why didn’t I know this existed before?) and then joined in a Crochet Along. The idea is to choose a pattern by Shibaguyz and make it during this month. I’ve chosen this gorgeous wrap front shrug for myself and am using the yarn I bought for the ill-fated hat for my step daughter last year.
I love the pattern on this shrug – it looks similar to one I bought at great expense a few years ago (but was always too hot when wearing it because it was quite thick). This one is fingering weight yarn (4 ply) and the stitches look great as I make it. I’ve almost finished the back.
As for the other plans I had this month, I’ve found lots of bag patterns that I love – 43 to be exact! Next job is to narrow these down to half a dozen which is a more manageable number I think 🙂 Then I can get started on those, but first I’m going to finish this wrap!
