It’s been a while since my last blog post but I’m back. I’m not exactly sure why there has been a lapse in bloggification but hopefully things will return to normal in 3, 2, 1….
I’ve finished my most recent creation The Staccato shawl featured in issue 50 of “Inside Crochet”. This was lovely to make, consisting of a pattern with three repeated rows to allow the shawl to grow and a simple edging. The Rowan cotton yarn was really enjoyable to work with; I shall be working with cotton and other such lighter yarns again!
The Shawl needed a good blocking before I was happy with the way it looked but I think it’s turned out great. I’m loving the triangular pattern and use of chaining.
Again lacking in willing models I did the job myself 🙂
Using this lovely vibrant cotton yarn has had an unsettling effect on me. I’m now looking at pricier yarns (such as Kidsilk Haze) with great longing and enthusiasm. This may be making my husband nervous 🙂
