    Default Made a warm shawl :)

    I've started crocheting again, using yarn out of my stash. I thought I'd try projects to help me keep warm with my new lower thermostat setting. I started with a shawl and will probably do an afghan next (I actually have yarn set aside for a quilt style afghan). This one used the nicest yarn I ever bought. I had squirreled it away for a project like this.

    This is a bottom up granny shawl made with knit picks andean silk (alpaca, silk, wool blend) in chocolate with an L hook. I used all 7 skeins I had...it came out to a perfect 65x32. I'm wearing it now and it really is nice and warm!

    I just recently started crocheting again myself.

    That is really pretty and I bet it will keep you nice and warm. I wish I could post pics of my recent projects...

    Great work! That yarn sounds great, and I'll bet it will keep you real warm.
