This prayer shawl is finished. I ran out of of the tan colored yarn, and decided to make the shawl longer by adding rows that mimicked the pattern of the hexagons. I edged the whole thing with one row of single crochet. It was a hit at the prayer shawl ministry group.

I belong to a group on FB called Crochet Craze. One of the members of the group showed a picture of a sweater she had just finished. I saw it, and know it was something I wanted to make. It is a pattern created by the Double Stitch Twins, and is on the Red Heart site, here.
I had some yarn left over from the baby blanket that I thought I would use. I crocheted a swatch and found that I needed to use two strands together of the baby yarn from Big Lots, with a K size crochet hook to get the right gauge. I used pink and yellow yarn together for the back, the sleeves, and the peplum. Blue and green yarn were combined together for the front and the edging. I also used one less treble stitch in each stitch for the sleeves, since it seemed like it was getting too bulky. It is the smallest size, for a two-year old. It worked up pretty fast, since I crocheted it in one evening. I figured out how to tie it before I photographed it, the next day. :)
The baby blanket is finished! It really knit up pretty quickly, once I got the hang of it. I think it is around 30"x 36". I actually knit through one ball and part of another ball before I decided it was going to be a lot bigger than I planned. So I frogged it and redid it. I like how it turned out. Even my husband commented on how soft it was.
I only used two skeins, so I decided to crochet a scarf with another skein. The pattern was demonstrated on a video by Mikey, from The Crochet Crowd.
It is very quick and easy. I finished in about thirty minutes, and still have about 2-3 yards of yarn left. Now I have to figure out what to do with the other skein. Maybe I will make another scarf to give to someone else.
