Here is my big and warm and cosy shawl I wanted to finish a long time ago! Well done, Miss Inconsistency! Every time I finish a project that has been lying around for some time, I'm a little bit proud of myself. Unfortunately I always start new projects before finishing one, so there are many, many projects lying in baskets, on shelves or just in a bag next to the sofa. I have to admit that I lost the overview. But after our holiday I told myself to work more aim-oriented (can you say so?), to finish at least one thing before I start with an new one. Maybe I should write a list.... But back to the shawl:
But honestly, after some time I lost my interest in it because it just took so long to finish one row and I didn't really see a progress. But then again... This shawl kept staying in my creative mind, it somehow wanted to be finished.
The last weeks I put myself together to accomplish this long-lasting project. I crocheted 64 rows until I decided that this shawl had the right size for me. But then it looked a little bit 'boring', 'expressionless'?
It needed a border! To choose one took me some time but then I found a romantic border I really liked. It's called "Mayflower border" but I can't say anymore where I found it. I copied it from a magazine I was reading when I was sitting at the doctors a long time ago. I put it in my pattern folder and forgot about it. It's simple but it gives a nice little extra to the shawl.
The longest side has a simple shell edging.
I love, love, love my new shawl. It is great for the weather we have to endure here in the Northern part of Germany at the moment. Rain and storm with temperatures at 13 degrees.
Have a nice weekend, Viola
