I’ve been busy all weekend finishing my shawl which I absolutely aDoRE! On Friday I started the border, which started to take shape nicely
and on Saturday morning I took my shawl to footie practice (mini-Hippy, not me) and it was gorgeous sitting inside the car in the sunshine finishing the border
(let’s hope I wasn’t supposed to be watching football practice!)
And on Sunday morning I got up early to finish the border – and took it to the workroom to do the blocking – boring but necessary!
So here it is (albeit in its unblocked version) but oh my, is she pretty!
I’ve decided she’s a ‘she’, albeit a bit crinkly in this picture but when she has dried into shape she will be GORgeOUs!!!
A quick word about the yarn – I’ve used quite a bit more than the pattern said and didn’t do as many rows after the border, but will explain this in my Tah-Dah! post when you’ll see her in all her glory! (Suffice to say the border wasn’t supposed to be blue but due to lack of main colour I had to improvise – and I’m glad I did!
What do you think?
What are you hooking? (inlinkz – thank you Chrissie at Chrissie Crafts for letting me know about this brilliant Linky thingy! Please link to my post – Nordic Shawl or otherwise!
