Sneak Preview Nordic Shawl but not quite a Tah-Dah (yet!)

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?

  2. Hi Una, Thanks for your comment. I'm hoping the shawl will be dry by tonight so that I can take some lovely photos for my Ta Dah post! Let's hope for a bit of sunshine. How are your crochet endeavours coming along? I now have a link section at the bottom of my post if you want to link in? Take care, Jane.
