So what are we all doing under lockdown?
Well, I'm going into the shop each day to fulfil online orders and to wait for a delivery which the delivery company has managed to mess up, trying to do some exercise and of course, I'm knitting and crocheting.
One of the projects I have started is the Sandrine crochet shawl designed by our crochet teacher, Gaelle. I'm doing this as a crochet-along with lots of other crocheters on Gaelle's crochet along facebook page, Crochet with Gaelle. So far I seem to be doing OK but have only done two clues so there is plenty of time to go wrong yet! I'm using a 4-ply Rico sock yarn bought from Wool in Bath about three years ago. I bought two colours, originally to make a skirt but fell a bit out of love with the yarn. One ball has gone to Tal to make socks and the other is making this shawl.
I've done a crochet along before and it is a great way to learn new skills. The previous one was a granny square blanket (now gracing Lawrence and P'ls flat in The Hague) and now this shawl. It's great to see everybody else's progress on the group too and Gaelle is adding video tutorials too.
Why not have a go? Here is the link and you can find plenty of yarn in our online shop!
