Here is another one of my crochet projects. This was started as a stash buster but after I finished almost all my yarn I had a size which was not useful for anything so I went and bought more yarn to make this huge more than 108" X 108" which fits my huge bed  easily. I also use it as a rug for sit down gatherings. It has more than 13 colours and is made in Log Cabin Pattern. It has 3 rows of sc (US terminology) before I changed the colour and the direction.

My first post

My version of All Shawl by Doris Chan.

I had to start somewhere so I thought I would start with this post. I completed my first shawl of the eleven I will be doing in 2011. It was a fairly easy pattern but it took me way too many days to complete as I was doing too many different things for the last two months. But I am happy with this shawl. It is a very light shawl.
I will be using this red non branded yarn from my stash which is actually used for machine knitting. I am using 3 strands together. 
Now that I have posted my first thoughts I hope to up date at least weekly if not more frequently.
Here is a picture of this vibrant red shawl. It is a free pattern available on by Doris Chan. I modified the stitch slightly.
