Good morning all!
Hope you are all well! Its chilly and grey here brrrrrr and my thoughts have defiantly turned to Christmas! I normally start much earlier in the year to spread my projects out but being in Italy made it hard to get the materials i needed mainly because the post always seemed to go astray!
I tend to work on themes each yeah and this year i decided out of the blue to make shawls…. from lace… which i had never done before! Talk about a challenge! But i found some beautiful patterns and got cracking and have been really enjoying it, helped of course by having some beautiful yarns from some amazing dyers!
Firstly i had this gorgeous custom colour way in some super fine lace from Devon Sun yarns–
Isn’t it gorgeous! this was so soft and fine, it had silk in it so was a little slippery to work with (especially when i had never tried crocheting lace before! I used a beautiful patter called Izumi and this was the result-
Isn’t it lovely! i am so pleased with it and its so delicate i can pull it through my wedding ring! (if you look you can spot my ring in the pictures!)
Next i had a go at using some 4ply to give my hand a break from crocheting lace and used this lovely 4ply yarn from Shamu Makes–
I used the Elise pattern which is free (even better!) on Ravelry! Its super easy and very quick to work up. This was the result-
Its lovely and squishy ❤
I have two more shawls to work up, i am over halfway through one and have my fingers tightly crossed i will get them both finished in time. At the moment i have this stunning yarn from Truly hooked on my hook and its working up beautifully! Its supersoft lace and the colours are just stunning!
I am making up a stunning pattern called Ozwin, i had originally planned on doing a different pattern but i couldn’t get into the flow of it so found this stunning pattern. Its really easy to crochet and has a lovely flow, i am flying through it. Here is an in progress piccy-
Aren’t the colours gorgeous? Its like summer in a bowl!
I don’t have a good piccy of my final yarn yet so will just have to share that next time but let me say its from the amazing Cuddlebums and its BEAUTIFUL!
So a quickie from me really but I’m crocheting like a mad woman to make sure i get finished in time!
Don’t forgot to pop over and say hi on my new Facebook page- My Wide Eyed World!
Ciao for now!
