Glad y'all like them!

As for the shawl pattern, I think I am capable of writing it and wouldn't mind doing so.  However, in my opinion, the design isn't completely mine.  A friend gave me the idea.  I don't want to do anything with it unless she feels comfortable, and she's so busy that I haven't asked.

I made that poncho too!  In fact, I had to email you for help!  It is gorgeous!  I gave mine to my Mom for her birthday last march.  I wish I had taken a picture of it.  I did black with pink flowers.

Where did you put the beads on the poncho?  I made one last year as a shower gift in dark and light blue...it was very well received, but I think I would LOVE one for *me* in black with beads!!

Lets see, can I really put myself through all those ch3,sc's again?Huh??  They almost killed me!

By ch 3, sc's, you mean the little loops on the edges of all the flower petals?  Yeah, those do get tedious, but I really like how they look!

Here's a closeup of where I put the beads.  I also put some on the edging on the bottom.



I CAN crochet neater than that...when I'm in the mood.   Tongue

Thanks...those beads really add to the look!

Actually, I was talking about the mesh part, which I guess was a little more than ch3 before the sc, but it just seemed to take forever!

And I think your crochet looks great!
