Hybrid Tea Rose Shawl
Here’s a shawl for those who appreciate the best of both worlds: knit the shawl body, then crochet the edging! Just in time to sit outside in the garden while you work, sipping tea and nibbling on a cookie or two. By the time you are done with the shawl, those tea roses may just be in bloom!
A year ago I was a solitary knitter and crocheter. Working obsessively, but just how many gifts can you give to friends and relatives? It was reaching the point where I considered stopping strangers in the street to give away my creations, when I saw a sign in a nearby library: “Yarn Donations Needed for CARE TO KNIT.” And there was a cardboard box filled with yarn. Hmmm… a group of knitters who knit for charity? Maybe I wouldn’t have to accost those strangers after all; someone had already found needy strangers for me!
Yes, it was all true, and even better, I made so many new friends! They all love to knit and/or crochet, just like me!
