I started a new shawl a few weeks ago - think I've mentioned it already. So I just wanted to show off my progress so far. I'm on row 20 now.
I really like how the colors "pool", rather than striping, using crochet stitches.
I've not been overly excited about long self-striping color yarns used for crochet, so far. I guess if you have the right pattern it looks good. For instance, the striping on the long-wise stitched scarf I made for my sister worked out really well.
