i think i mentioned i joined the ravelry site finally, and i am so totally addicted now. i have been trying to teach myself to knit and/or crochet off and on for years now, and i decided i WILL do it this time! i am practicing my crochet this time, and here is a photo i shot of my WIP, (work in progress) a shawl, early on in it's progress. it looked so much like a head of lettuce wrapped up like that! i used to work as a field worker cutting lettuce many years ago...seems like another lifetime ago now. ( maybe it was.) anyway, i am almost finished with this one. i have only to put fringe along the edges now. i think maybe it needs beads on the fringe though. everything looks better with beads!
