Crocheted Shawl for Tj - Marbled Taupe

| 1 Comment

Size (not stretched): 78 inches across; 40 inches top to bottom
Colors: Marbled Taupe (Caron Cozi) (less than 7 2.5-ounce skeins)
Pattern: Style No. 2338-220 (pattern adjusted for N hook)
Book: All Shawls - Leaflet 220 - Designer not specified - Copyright 1976 - Bernat
Hook: N
Date: October 2004

I started Tj's shawl late Sunday morning using a Q hook instead of the J hook called for by the pattern (I couldn't see through all the yarn fuzz and needed a larger hook, which meant the pattern needed to be adjusted), got it almost done when I ran out of yarn by around 4:00pm, dashed to Michaels for 3 more skeins of Cozi in Marbled Taupe - and N and P hooks (at Bill's suggestion since he thought the holes in the shawl pattern were too big with the Q hook). With a new skein of yarn, I started another shawl with the N hook so I could see which I liked better...

Of course, I liked the N-hook shawl better! I ended up pulling out the first shawl to use that yarn on the new one. Just before I got halfway down one side of the border, I again ran out of yarn! Damn! The pattern calls for 5 ounces of Bernat 3-ply fingering yarn. I had already used 6 2.5-ounce skeins (15 ounces!) of Caron Cozi ("Bulky Weight Fashion Yarn") and needed another half skein! At $4.99 per skein, this is an expensive shawl! Harrumph.

So, I stopped by Michaels on the way home from work yesterday to buy 3 more skeins - since I also want to make a beret from the Headline USA book for Tj.

I finished the shawl and and the beret last night!!! They look so good! There's 1 full skein of yarn left to use for...whatever!

My mom found an old Bernat Price List with Book 220 "All Shawls" and commented she would like to have the booklet because she loved the shawl pictured on front. So, here I am online trying to find it for her. I was wondering if there is any way to get a copy of it, I would love to surprise here with it.
