I haven't posted much lately because I have been busy as a tester for Kathy(Katchkan) on her Autumn Shawl.  I couldn't find an Autumn color that I liked so decided to do it in a light blue.   I will be using some dark blue beads for the trim,  but I will post pictures when I have it all completed.

Autumn shawl when I lost my hook in the couch unforunately the couch wouldn't give up the hook so I had to put the Autumn shawl on hold until I could buy a new hook.  So in the meantime I had to keep my hands busy so I worked on this.  It is a free pattern that you can get at Crochetville that Kathy has posted.
