Circular Crochet Shawl & Shark Tank & Manganaro's HEROBOY

 I had fun making this putting together my left over yarns and filling in with a few new bought yarns.  There was a pink and gray mohair with a sparkle thread. a lovely soft pink and purple yarn, and some new plums and grays thrown in.

I love the ruffle edging.  The grays and pinks came together so nicely.  Remember I thought the white was too stark so crocheted a braid and wove it through, I do like the look.

I'm working on a charcoal gray fleck crochet skirt to match with it. It's a double crochet and shell stitch, a work in progress.

Of course as soon as I finish we'll have a heat wave, but the weather is still chilly.  Picked my first miniature daffodils out of the garden today.

Last Friday I was up at 4:30AM to get up to New York for a Promo Show at the Javits Center.  The opening seminar had Daymond John from Shark Tank.  He's pretty entertaining especially as to how he got going, a true rags to riches story, with his FUBU brand.

Stopped in at our office on 8th Avenue.  Very late lunch meatballs and pasta very good, at an Italian restuarant Manganaro's HEROBOY at 492 - 494 9th Avenue between 37th and 38th Streets, in the Hells Kitchen area which is due for a hevty revamp as the subway is being extended to that area, home by 6:30PM, made for a pretty long day.

  1. I love the colours and it really suits you. I am envious of your talent and patience. An interesting day out but exhausting. I'd have needed a couple of days off to recover!
