A Snowy Crochet-y Day

It's snowing like crazy out!

What a perfect day to snuggle up and do nothing but knit and crochet!
I have chosen to start on another Seraphina Shawl, this time for my daughter Angela.
As I started it, I was reminded about some of my 'problems' last time!
I am again using the same Rainbow Boucle from Joann's, but this time in a different colorway. It is a beautiful color, and I am anxious to see the color pattern start to immerge. BUT, I had forgotton how difficult it is to see the stitches with this yarn! As I stated in a previous post, I would like to see this pattern worked up in a simpler yarn, one that is not a fuzzy boucle.
Fortunately, I am alone and it is quiet today, as the pattern for Seraphina Shawl can be difficult to get started with. The pattern creates itself in the first 10 or 11 pattern rows and then starts to unfold beautifully, but up until that time, it can be a bit perplexing at times. You will find it easier to follow, I believe, if you look at the wonderful pictures that go with the pattern.
More on that later....
Well, Gina did not have the baby on New Year's Day! We are still waiting patiently. Well, Gina is waiting a bit impatiently! The baby is another boy, and we are so excited! I will keep you posted. The nurses at the hospital thought it would be last night or today, since we are in the middle of a snowstorm! Who knows, maybe tonight?
Well, back to Seraphina.....
Pin It!

OMG, I swear I lived in a house that looked just like that, lol.
But that was Eastern Ontario.

your seraphina is wonderful. I hope the one I am working on looks half as nice :-)
