More than a year ago, I started crocheting a shawl in Vinnis cotton; read about it here. 100 squares later, I've finally finished it! Crocheting with cotton is difficult and slow-going - the cotton 'splits' and you don't get very far working with such thin thread.
It's really pretty but I don't love it. I've learnt that I don't like having to constantly adjust and fix my clothing during the day...endlessly tugging and straightening things. Shawls fall off my shoulders, so I regularly have to straighten them. Nah, not for me. I'll wear it when I'm doing a lot of sitting still, like at Bible Study or at work.
Next project - a poncho for winter...hopefully no tugging or straightening required!
