    I LOVE LOVE LOVE to crochet. But if you looked at my bedroom there is very little in it that I have made. I give away almost everything I make and only keep what I don't consider good enough to give away. But I have decided to make something for me for a change. I found a beautiful shawl pattern and ordered some chenille yarn to make it with. Too hot for it now so I will put it aside to make later this year when it won't be so hard to work with. But come this fall and winter I will have something very nice to wear for a change. :yay:

    Thank you all for your kind responses. I still can't believe that I am doing this. It feels so out of character and a little wrong to be doing this for myself. Ever since I learned to crochet I have crocheted for friends, family and charity. Never anything for me. My "mantra" here is "Be gentle with yourself". My friends here have now told me to live by my own words and to "Be gentle with myself" LOL Ok friends here goes.

    Here is the link to the pattern I have picked. I am keeping it with the yarn so I won't lose it.

    And here is the link for the yarn. It is the dark blue color. Blue is my second favorite color. (No pink available :( )

    When I do finish it I will try and post a picture of it. And again thanks for the kind responses.
