Crochet Books and a few CAL Blocks

Crochet so Fine by Kristin Omdahl
this book has been on my wishlist and I finally got it. I am going to try some of these beautiful designs this summer. Wish me luck!

This shawl is called the Butterfly Shawl...don't you just love the lacy design and the strip in the middle looks like butterflies.
Diamonds shawl...
Another book I've had for a while has everything Crochet. I recommend the Encyclopedia of Crochet by Donna Kooler for anyone that crochets. From the beginner to the pro crocheter this book has everything you need to know to design all phases of crochet.
Lap of Luxury afghan teaches the beginner about using multiple colors.
And when you are a pro...(I'm not there yet) you can make this beautiful Philosopher's Coat. This is the front...
This is the back...isn't it the most gorgeous thing you have ever seen???
And there is everything in between...scalloped edgings...
Tons of stitches I've never heard of but am dying to try...
This is my March 12" 2012 Crochet a Block a Month Crochet a long on Ravelry. I had to take a picture at this point because I thought it would make such  pretty potholder...
And here it is all done. Don't you think it's perfect for St. Patrick's Day??
and the close up of my square...
This is the 6" square for this month's CBAM CAL.
Well, that's it for today. Thank you for all of you kind comments. I do appreciate them.You all have a great weekend and Happy St. Patrick's Day and
Happy Crocheting!!

These Peas Taste Funny

  6. Wow, you've got big aspirations, which no doubt you are capable of. Your square is just the thing for St. Pat's day. I myself have nowhere near enough patience to crochet - but I do envy those who do. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Blessings.
