- I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Granny Hex Shrug completed
I have finally completed the Granny Hex shrug from an internet pattern. Basically you make two large hexagons with crocheted granny stitches (double crocheted), fold each into L shapes, seam up the center back and across sleeve/shoulders for a kimono sleeved open short jacket. I used Lion Brand Jiffy for a bulky yarn - it's acrylic, soft and airy, in a dark purple mist. You finish it all with single crochet on the arms, bottom and around front opening/neck.
