Penelope Shawl pattern

I put this up as a free pattern on Ravelry a while back, but wanted to add it here to make sure you knew about it. Penelope is a great first shawl pattern as it is easily memorized so there's no need to keep looking at the pattern as you make the body of the shawl. It's a joy to make. It's shown here in Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, but any yarn and hook size will work.

Border Rounds and Finished Circle Dance Afghan

Ta-daaa! My afghan is finally finished. I zoomed through crocheting all the blocks but sewing it together was the challenge I thought it would be. I hope yours is coming along swimmingly.

For the border rounds, I simply worked two rounds of dc in each st with (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in each corner.

Then we gave it a nice steaming laid out on the bed, and the finished result is ready to go to its new home at my daughter's house.
