I'm crocheting a summer shawl made of Crochet Thread.
Happy Crocheting! What are you making?

I received an email from an online yarn store that features a kit using Noro sock yarn and a crocheted, open weave, shawl.
I'm not advocating any yarn store here, or advertising. I'm just passing along a cute pattern that could be used for a light summer shawl.
The last time I used Noro yarn, was a crocheted scarf in Kureyon, and it was scratchy. The Noro skeins also had more knots than I thought acceptable for such a small skein.
But I think I will try the kit, and hope the sock yarn is a little softer. It's said to have very little wool. Well, I'll post the site here, and you can judge.
I think this could be a cute accessory. I do like the color changes without having to stop and start the yarns and weave in ends. Hopefully there won't be as many knots as my last experience.

I have never tried making baby booties. This must be fun to make.

That's a great way to use your stash! I think all kids need to do something during the summer. I was going to give the booties to a rescue mission, but my DS said that he doubts they would have infants there. Good luck with the rummage sale!
I must confess that I didn't use knit/crochet booties on my kids very often ~ they are in their 20s now. I don't know what the moms now do in the winter. When my kids were babies, they would have elasticized socks and shoes on under their winter snow suits.

Hi temari, thanks! Not use booties on babies, even during winter time? I need to reduce my stash too. I think I'm going to make bazaar type items to contribute to our Church's rummage sale which helps the Church kids go to summer camp.

Your shawl is beautiful! I really like the color. I'm trying to reduce my stash so I'm knitting whatever project seems like I have enough yarn for - tried a lot of bootie patterns, but I read that moms now tend not to use booties!
