    The 2nd earwarmer I made from the Whims Merino I received with the Furls hook using the Star Stitch.
    I really like this stitch!

      That would match the sweater you are making.... and the socks you will be making. 😇

    I just found this place for my crochet FO's, now that I know it's here, I will post 🙂

    Just finished these two scarves today. Both are v-stitch, both are two strands together. Red one is two of the Woolike lace. Pink/purple and white one is Premier Wool Free Sock, and Woolike. Two more scarf WIP's hopefully finished next week.

    Such lovely work! I'm still stashbusting away, so this is not a choice of colours I especially like, but as a centre for my garden table it will do. I couldn't spread it out, as the garden table needs a damn good clean off and my usual alternative, my bird food store, has been rendered impossible by the gratitude of feathered friends.

      knitter131 Thank you! I think I'll be sticking to the lighter weight yarns from now on too. Fingering weight crochets up like butter compare to worsted.

          I finished my granny lapgan a couple of days ago. I posted it elsewhere, but I forgot to being it here as well. It's DK weight, quite thick and heavy.

          Bought the hook and yarn at my Babetta's Yarn shop here near Sacramento. It is the Butterfly Shawl pattern by FiberSpider. The Butterfly pin belonged to my mom. The original plan was to also use the purples...but I decided not to do that. Any suggestions for the purples?

            I am cuddly sized - no bandages for me....

            (But if I did it would be teal. 😂)

            I am beyond cuddly, bandages for me would take half the LYS stash. I don't know how anyone can wear close fitting clobber in hot weather - I'm usually wearing a t-shirt I got in a sale at Mr Big and Tall (my son is 6'4" with size 13 feet so we used to shop there a lot - his waist is 36", damn him!) that is actually 3 sizes too big and comes to my knees.

            One of my sons is 6'3" with size 15 feet. My own size 11's look petite next to him, lol.

          I've spent most of May on this floor cushion. Apart from the odd amigurumi.

            Thank you - I actually filled it with an old booster cushion I used to use before I got my armchair, as my old chair left me too low down to see my monitor. The new chair is higher up, so the cushion was obsolete and is now reborn.

          Probably my last FO for May. A summer tee made with Zitron Polo (Cotton/Acrylic) using my own pattern. Original color was #400 Purple/Pink. Dyed with Rit Dyemore Royal Purple & Sapphire Blue. Used size I hook & 1,027 yards. Linen stitch with ESC.

          I have too many WIPs not to have finished one thing! I made a basket from the Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts Lacy Crochet traveling treasure book to go with Grand2's blanket:

            Thanks all! The basket is made out of Red Heart 100% nylon size 18 which by itself makes a stiff item (if you crochet tightly which is hard on the hands). I made it even more rigid with Aleene's fabric stiffener so at 14" across, it's actually a solid little basket.

            I used one strand of Patons Grace (blue & gray) and one of Elegant Yarns Athena (light blue - lace) for the "hangy". That pattern is actually a partial from the Moorish Mosiac Afghan by Lisa Naskrent.

            Thanks knitter131! Isn't it interesting how we all are naturally drawn to a certain color or palette? The only blue in my house is teal or turquoise - all other shades of blue I use for others.
