Today I've started my next crochet project - I'm being brave and making a shrug! I am using Crochet X-Stitch shrug pattern, which I found on Ravelry. I'm using Bendigo Woollen Mills Serenade yarn - it is a mix of 40% bamboo and 60% wool in "Merlot". So far I am loving this yarn and the pattern is easy, I think it will crochet up quite quickly.
The pattern does specify worsted wool, which I think is 10 ply in aussie terms. I had purchased this yarn for another project which I started and didn't like, so I'm making a slight adaption. To make up for the variation in thickness of yarn I'm using a 5.5 mm hook - this seems to be working well.
