Monday, 7/19/10 Lace Weight Shawl

My Lace Weight Shawl
If you read my blog, you probably already know that I have made countless doilies, tablecloths, and one bedspread from crochet thread (size 10), but until now, I had never before crocheted anything with lace weight yarn.

Last weekend I was inspired by a friend of mine named Jordan. I met Jordan in my LYS several years ago and get inspiration from her and my other friends as well. But last weekend, Jordan was wearing a shawl that I couldn’t take my eyes off of. We all asked her about it, and she said that she had crocheted it out of lace weight yarn. Well, there were several of us who couldn’t resist buying some lace weight yarn right then and there.

And look what I finished—a lace weight shawl of my very own, and I know this will not be my last lace weight shawl. I wonder what sock weight yarn would look like in a shawl since I can’t stop buying it as well. Crochet Soiree has some really cool sock yarn for sale here—Kroy, Deborah Norville, Red Heart, Bernat, etc.

Tell me what kinds of things you have made with lace weight yarn.
