Since I took up crocheting I have made a few blankets for Project Linus. It’s a good excuse to sit in front of the TV while helping a charity. Right?
Well, when I was attending a meeting at church back in February I was listening to the ladies who make prayer shawls discuss some recent submissions. In the discussion it was mentioned that they need more masculine shawls for men. Most of the shawls that are donated are somewhat feminine. Well, since I don’t have enough going on *insert HEAVY sarcasm here* I decided that I might try making some masculine shawls.
So, it’s a bit thick and I won’t tell you how many skeins of yarn that I used for this shawl. I used Hobby Lobby’s ‘I Love This Yarn!’ in Stonewash. This pattern used alternating front- and back-post double crochet stitches.
It actually didn’t take me long to do because I took it with me to jury duty. As I sat there waiting to be called I worked on this shawl. We were smooshed in this room like sardines, but I had enough room to hold the yarn on my lap while working the crochet hook. In fact, a few of my fellow citizens were a bit jealous that I was enjoying myself so much. They had already bored themselves with the vast amount of information that they can get on their phones. Some people brought magazines, but we were there for about four hours so they easily finished their reading material.
So, what do you think?
