Shawl no.4......


This is another shawl I have just finished for my mum

This was the a lovely shawl to crochet

I love how the pattern changed throughout

the main body of the shawl keeping it interesting and fun.

Yarn used was - 5 x 100gm Lincraft Surprise Yarn in Sunset

Called the Juliette Shawl it was designed by Dora Ohrenstein

the pattern can be found in the book below

I really love that green scarf/stole on the front cover as well...

might have to put it on the 'to-do' list ;)

so it is needless to say not much else has been crocheted, including my block of the week project....which I think I'll need to change the name of soon to block of the month or even bi-monthly block - oh well, I'm having fun with my hook and that's the main thing isn't it ;)

...............................................................

Have a lovely week

~ Gillian ♥

Gill Eclectic me is a perfect fit for blog name in my mind as I have seen your craft evolve from when I first started to be a follower and friend, when you were making cards, through your mixed media, jewellery and now your yarn craft sharing. I love how your latest shawl looks wrapped as a scarf in that top pic - Gorgeous.

You could consider "A-Shawl-of-the-Week"?
This shawl looks great, and I agree with you on the pattern changing.

Gorgeous! I'm just starting out in crochet and I thought my ambitions didn't extend beyond my granny squares but this food for thought :)
