My crochet spot with the best helper ever

Anywhere is fair game to be a crochet spot. At a sports practice, in the car waiting for pick up, waiting room, lunch room, at a swim meet ... that's why I love crochet. It's the most portable craft! But, there's one spot in our house, "the wedge" in our family room sectional that attracts people and pets alike. The light is perfect, there is an end table at your right and outlet close by for charging laptops.

I've been bitten by the japanese flower motif bug! All the bright cotton colors for spring make me so joyous. This is going to be a crochet shawl to wear in over-conditioned restaurants, at work and to the Muny. I'm using dribs and drabs of Paton's Grace and Tahki Cotton Classics. Lovely stuff to work with!


  1. That would make really beautiful garland, too! Makes me want to crochet a TON of those and hang it up around my house! So pretty! Can't wait to see your finished shawl.

  2. Beautiful colors and that yarn sounds like a great choice!

  3. Lovely colors! I'm not there yet in my expertise, though!

  4. Gail, I watched YouTube videos to get the hang of it. I can't always read directions and make sense of it.

  5. I love this post! Just makes me want to join you on the wedge - but of course i will be bringing along my knitting! Working on another pair of socks for Diane.

    These two portable crafts - sure put bits of "waiting" time to good use. When i was in college I used to knit while standing in line at the dorm cafeteria! Knitted a whole sweater that way!

    Your crocheted squares are simply beautiful. Can't wait to see the completed project.
