My other hobby

I believe I have mentioned in the past that I like to crochet.

Unlike many people who knit or crochet, this is not a fall or winter weather hobby for me.  I crochet in the summer. I am much too busy on the internet in the fall & winter to sit down & crochet.

Summer is swimming season.  I sit out on the porch, under the 70% shade cloth & watch the kids in the pool. My high gloss screen laptop is useless in these conditions. I can’t see a darn thing on it in daylight. So I crochet instead.

Back in March I showed you all this


The 1000 yard skein of yarn I was rolling into a ball prior to crocheting it into a shawl.

Eventually it became this


And I started working on the shawl yesterday at long last.

I’ve finished this much so far


Hmm… that needs something to give a sense of scale…

What can I use…

Oh yeah


It’s granny T-Rex


I’ll be posting periodic updates as it gets larger.

Someday I hope for it to fit me.

That yarn is beautiful. It will make a lovely shawl for T-Rex or you.
