A little crochet action















I was at a holiday party in November and one of the lenders that I work with had on a beautiful lacy shawl. It was done in gold glittery yarn and looked fabulous with her dressy dress. I commented on it and she said she made it with a "hairpin loom". I told her I had never heard of that and she said she would send me the information I needed to make one. Well, yesterday, a little Christmas package arrived for me from her to thank me for the referrals I sent her this year. Along with a pretty little poinsettia, there was a package with the makings of that cute little shawl. I haven't crocheted in years but I'm definitely going to try this. That shawl was so cute. Check it out here... It's the Dagmar Shawl...

I might need to do this lacy shawl for 2006.

I did hairpin lace about 25 years ago, but do you think I remember how????I'd need a refresher. It ought to be GORGEOUS!!!

Ooooo! Let us know how that goes! I keep looking at those hairpin lace making contraptions and they, like all notions and such, are tempting!
