While in Texas

I was in Dallas for a few days attending a conference for work. While I was there I visited with an aunt and cousin. I gave my aunt this Blue Curacao shawl for a belated ninetieth birthday present. The pattern is from Doris Chan's Amazing Crochet Lace, using Valley Yarns' Goshen, a lovely silk/cotton blend. During flight times, I crocheted up the beginnings of a table runner, using Berroco's Naturlin yarn.

That shawl is so very pretty. I loved the color. I know she would be very pleased to have it.

Beautiful shawl--and photos--Betsey. It has such nice drape! Looks like the Valley Yarns Goshen was perfect for that project.

Thanks! It's very, very fast to hook up. It took me a few weeks, but I was only working on it off and on.
