More crocheting

Today I made two flowers for the white hat I made yesterday: one in the same white yarn; one in that same yarn, in white and orchid, two strands held together. I made both so that they could be tied onto the hat from the inside--interchangeable. :-)

I worked some more on a stole/shawl I am making in Lion Brand Chunky USA Lavender Jazz. It's the pattern that came in a kit (by Lion Brand) called Crochet for a Cause. The kit comes with one skein of LB Chunky USA Cherry Blossom, a pink P-15 (10 mm) crochet hook, pattern, and a breast self-exam chart. Sales benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The pattern is for a lacy openwork scarf, but I have made it wider and am using yarn I already had on hand. I'm almost half-way through. :-) I don't think I want to do fringe on the ends, though--I think some form of scallops will be nice. :-)

Then my Patons Brilliant yarn arrived today (along with some Red Heart Grande---White and Country Club) that I had ordered from Knitting Warehouse online. This evening I chained three uh, ropes? Well, I held two strands together and chained 200 chains of White Twinkle (which looks like silver). Then I did the same in Gold Glow. And finally I held one strand of Sparkling Rose and one strand of Marvelous Mocha together and chained a "rope" of that. These three "ropes" will be braided together in the next day or so, for the ceremony next week. :-) :-)

I had also ordered some Patons Brilliant Lilac Luster, because I wasn't sure which would look more lavender-y, that or the Sparkling Rose. What I ended up doing is making a Capulet Caplet by holding one strand of Sparkling Rose and one strand of Lilac Luster together as one. From a distance, it turns into the shade of lavender I needed. :-)

So the only project I am on a timeline for at the moment is the Lavender Jazz stole/shawl. I hope to finish that in a day or so. (*knock on wood!*)
