This wee's Sizzlin Saturday bring you crochet wraps and shawls to keep you warm. I have included a few ponchos in here too! Shawls, wrap enfold, mother, comfort and give cover. Shawls have been around for centuries. Did you know, the first shawls were worn by Europeans in India and worn by men? The history of Shawls goes way back. Today, shawls are worn for many reasons, they even make prayer shawls.
Week 17 - Sizzlin Saturday's Round Up consists of sweaters for boys and girls. It's cold outside, we need to bundle up our precious packages! Crochet baby sweaters are perfect for these cool Fall days! Did you know.. Crochet patterns for which first appeared in the early nineteenth century, was at first a very different kind of handcraft. It belonged to what was referred to often as fancy work that included tatting, tapestry, and embroidery. The important thing about fancy work was that it was both artistic and unnecessary. It was a characteristic leisure occupation of well-to-do women who did not have to create anything essential. Instead they demonstrated their taste and skill by making decorative objects: embroidered handkerchiefs and slippers, crocheted lace for edgings and trimmings, little net purses, doilies and runners for tables, and fancy covers for sofas and chairs. Knitting was practical and common; fancy work was largely decorative, and esteemed useless. Today, crochet is making it's way!! :-)
