Here’s to picking up projects you started last year (and then abandoned because you had two wedding afghans to finish…) and finally finishing them!
I guess this is my first shawl-type scarf, and I never really realized how unwieldy they are to photograph. Not in a nice rectangular shape that you can just drape over a chair back and still see the pattern. Much thanks to my Adirondack chair for filling in.
I can’t wait until cold-weather fall comes around and I can start wearing this beauty!
That stitch pattern is just so gorgeous.
Especially that picot edging… (as much as I hate crocheting picots, I can see that it was totally worth it).
I really need a tripod. Selfies with a DSLR are HARD!
Much better lighting, but not quite enough hanging room.
Blocking is key for this project. For example, here’s the shawl all laid out, ready to block.
And here it is, pinned out. So much more open, you can see the stitch patterns gorgeously, and the picots come to those sharp points (that I just think make it look so delicate and beautiful).
Project details can be found out on ravelry, as usual!
What have you been crocheting lately?
