And in case you were interested – with all my newfound “getting it” on the crochet front – this is the project I am starting on the weekend (from the book Contemporary Crochet). It’s easy and tricky at the same time…. the actual crochet stitch is basic, but the shaping and decreasing and what not it all new to me. I’m going to attempt to finish this for the Ravellenics deadline of August 17th – since why not? It would be lovely to have a wool/silk/bamboo wrap for early fall.
