Crochet/Knit with Daughter Day

Today my daughter and her friend are coming to my house. We are going to work on our projects together while we watch a movie. It’s a great “girls day” for me and so precious to me, especially since most all of my days are spent here at the house being caregiver to my hubby.


I always look forward to seeing what they are working on. I’m crocheting another Naomi prayer shawl, this time using Caron Simply Soft orchid. It is working up so pretty.

I love using the new acrylic crochet hooks, but I have broken three of them now! Not sure why. Perhaps I hold them too tight, or they get warm after being used for a long time at a sitting. So I’m finishing this one with the regular steel hook. The main problem I have with using the Simply Soft is it tends to split easily, especially with the steel hooks. Sigh.

My next project will be a baby blanket for a brand new baby boy! More on this miracle birth in a later post.

Anyway I am looking forward to a great day!
