I brought all three of my Scheepjes crochet projects with me to the library this morning. Since I couldn’t make up my mind which one to put in my bag, I took all of them.
With the forecast calling for heat and humidity, the cotton blend of the yarns were a good choice. It’s usually a temperature control lottery in the library when the weather changes dramatically. Today the room was relatively comfortable, no doubt because the heat wouldn’t arrive until later in the morning.
Today’s blog post is a bit of a head scratcher. Perhaps it’s the heat. Perhaps it’s the sudden change in temperature from early March to late June. It must be my brain melting. That is the only explanation for it.

I’m struggling a bit today with finding an ongoing project to highlight for today’s WIP Tuesday so I turned to the Google machine to look for inspiration. I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news.
The sun is shining and the trees are sprouting their leaves while the lilac flowers are smelling wonderful. I continued to work on the Dimholt Shawl while I was at the library this morning. It’s going to be a slow process since the yarn is much thinner than what I normally use and there is so much of it in the cake.
I’m still loving how slowly the gradient is in this yarn. It adds to the fun, but doesn’t do much for my impatience. The photo to the right doesn’t show the last row of back post double crochets because they are hidden underneath. You’ll be able to see them when I start the next set of repeats.
Good day, everyone! Hope the beginning of your week is going well. Today’s pattern for WIP Tuesday is something that I have been working on for several months. It feels like a really long novel I don’t want to give up. I’ll be sad when it’s finished because it’s such a pleasure to crochet. What is it? Oh, it’s a shawl called Dimholt by Jasmin Räsänen that I found on Ravelry.
The shawl is so delicate and graceful that I had to find the perfect yarn to highlight the filet crochet and lacework. As an added bonus, the yarn I chose is a long gradient so I am not going to get bored.
