I Crocheted!
I'm so excited. If you check out my blog (the Let's go Mountaineers) you will see that I have tried to figure out crochet for awhile now, but just couldn't get it. I had a sock pattern that needed crocheted flowers up the side so decided to give it another go...after I finished those I decided to make a bookmark that I always loved...here it is...I'm going to send it to mom next week so she can kinda tell if (where) I'm making mistakes before I do another one...

I have always wanted to crochet this shawl and now I have found this shawl, they look similar so not sure which I'll do

Pattern: Fan Bookmark
Crochet hook: 1.25mm
I made it from some red Aunt Lyda's that mom had gave me a long time ago...
Started 3/28/08
Finished 3/29/08
Thank you to Julie for your help and encouragement

Well done. That looks really nice. I really like the second shawl but it could just be the colour that makes this stand out since they do look a lot a like.

Lovely job! I am sure you Mom will be pleased that she got the second crochet project you have ever worked on. How I wish I could knit some socks for my Mom! Oh never mind, enjoy your crocheting!

How pretty! Nice work on it!

I prefer the look and drape of knitting, but I think crochet as an added border or flowers is beautiful. I just checked out Knitting Loves Crochet from my library as a matter of fact.
