Yesterday was a wonderful sunny day here in The Netherlands, so I got my lovely assistant out, and was finally able to make some photos and list the grey/black/pink shawl in my Etsy shop.
Winter in these parts of the world even has an impact on a blogger’s slash etsy seller’s life …. Too often it’s too dark to take decent photos – one more reason to crave for longer, brighter, and yes, warmer days!
Luckily I’ve seen some early signs of Spring during my daily walks with the dogs: yesterday I noticed some snowdrops. Although we were braving a heavy hailstorm at that very moment, just the sight of these elegant little flowers made me smile!
The first “Summer Shawl” was made with the “Alize Cotton Gold“, in a light pink (color 371). It was also the first project I made from Maaike van Koert’s lovely book “Puur Haken” (for more info, click here) and I so enjoyed crocheting it!
Pattern wise it was a nice change from the South Bay Shawls – another favorite – and not too long after the pink one I made this grey one.
I used a double strand of the “Hema Fine” acrylic, hook 7 for the grey and black, and the last round is done with the same pink “Alize” that I crocheted the first “Summer Shawl” with.
Given the fact that it’s big and warm, it’s more of a “Winter Shawl” actually – I simply love how it turned out with the black and light pink border …..
What’s your favorite shawl-pattern? I’d love to hear, so please do share!
Hopefully the sun’s shining today where you are too!
