Back to Granny Hexes

Need blocking!

My Hobby Lobby Brick

A crocheted brick (3 x 6 rectangle) to go with other knitted and crocheted ones to build the wall of separation between church and state recently cracked by SCOTUS.  Sent to (alas)
Secular Coalition of America
1012  14th St, NW  Suite 205
Washington, DC 20005
But I identified myself as a member of Holy Yarns from Trinity (secular humanism is better than religious inhumanism, right?)

First Prayer Shawl Project

This is my first shawl for my church's prayer shawl project.  It is a simple piece:
Chain to width + 1, turn and sc in each chain, chain 3, turn dc in each stitch.  Then two more rows of dc.  Repeat one row sc, three of dc to length, finishing with an sc row.

Lacy Shawl

A simple (in principle) pattern: Chain a multiple of five plus one to desired length (or width). SC in next loop (chain 2, dc in second loop, ch 3 sc in second loop) to end,  Ch 3 (counting as a dc), chain 2, sc in first dc, ch 2 dc in first sc) to end (end on a dc) . chain 1, (sc in dc, chain 3,  dc in sc,) to end (ending with sc).  Repeat the two rows  to the length or with desired,  Bind off.


In practice, things get a little confused at some places so it looks more random than the orderly instructions suggest.  Still, it is light and airy for a summer wrap.

A Shoulder Bag

This is not from  CG but a commercial pattern (from whoever makes Loops & Threads Charisma) passed on to me (without an identifying cover).  Though it doesn't show well, it is is a sagey yarn with navy trim (I can this close to have enough yarn for the whole but went back and did the trim in a contrasting color).  The recipient of the bag has added a piece of cardboard to the bottom (in the hanging shot) and will reinforce the strap with cloth.
