Comfort shawl

Took a little break from the hats though I do have a couple that I need to take pictures of. I have a friend who lost her brother to Cancer so made this comfort shawl for her. I thought it would be a quick and easy project but actually took me over a week to complete. I think I need to build up my crocheters endurance because after a couple days my fingers would just hurt so much and I'd have to take a break often. If I ever make a shawl again, I think I'll try a thicker yarn then it might not take as long to make. I used the eco yarn from caron again and am very happy with the way it turned out.

Hat 25

I always wanted to try and make a slouch hat. So had some nice slightly fuzzy yellow and blue yarn and tried my hand at it. I especially like slouch hats because you can wear them different ways too. Always fun.
