Follow-up Friday

maRRose - CCC --- Bridal Shawl-Summer Shawl-117This is a very happy “Follow-up Friday”-post, because I’ve finished my second bridal shawl – the “Love&Kisses” shawl – and I’m so, so pleased with the way it turned out!

I have to admit: it was not an easy ride and probably the project that I’ve had to frog (1,5 to 2 hours work per occasion, grrrr …..) the most ever, but every time I look at this red beauty now, I’m glad I did – it was really worth it.

The measurements are roughly 180 x 55 cm (71 x 22 inches) and I’ve used approx. 1.000 metres of the “Colortwist”, a 100% cotton.

The fabulous yarn I used is a made-to-order Colortwist, available from Echtstudio.

Both bridal shawls are now patiently waiting for my sweet friend (and her approval) …..

Wonderful, talented crocheters that you can find here and here.
And if you’re also one of them – please leave a link in the comments; I’d love to see what you’re working on!
