First, I had to move all my books & bookcases across the living room. Then, I could position the plastic shelving for fabric & other craft supplies. Now, I need to give the shelves a good wipe-down before putting away my fabric and yarn.

I wanted to test the fit of Butterick 5218 so I dug out some linen scrap fabric from two earlier projects. I was able to get the front, facing, and sleeves out of the toile. I pieced the back by adding a CB seam and a seam crosswise about 5 inches above the hem. The collar & under collar were also cut from the black linen.
I'm using my vintage Singer 301A for the first time and it seems like a dream! I just love it.

The shawl was fun to crochet but the yarn makes it very difficult to rip out mistakes. But the finished product is lovely.
|Finished except for running in the ends|
This shawl is comfy to wrap around my neck for some color and a little warmth.
