Here's the second shawl blocking beside my ugly toes, hee hee! . . .
This is yet another very ornate shawl - almost Victorian in style, but a very fun knit. Again I used only one ball of yarn which I think is part of the attraction!
A little close up . . . .
The lace opened up beautifully after blocking as you can see above. I pinned out all the peaks individually - a bit back breaking but worth it in the end. This one was called Haruni Shawl by Emily Ross - you can see it here.
I sort of flew through this one in a week and a half - I just couldn't wait to see how it turned out :)
I'm now going to 'behave' and slow down a bit and concentrate on 'shop' things - I promise!
In between all that, youngest had a birthday . . .
He's such a fun kid - all 14 years of him! (Not really 'Little S' anymore as I used to refer to him here!)
|Here he is with 'Ji-ji' the cat on his birthday - she looks a little restless!|
Well, must dash and NOT do any more crafty stuff until I get a bit more organised - who am I kidding, it's not going to happen!
Cheerio an Drasda :)
