Crochet Lace Shawl

9 Comments

Here is my very special latest work. The yarn is the deliciously luxurious silk from Babylonglegs in Slated. I used a 3mm crochet hook taking inspiration from the pretty shawl pattern by Milobo and adding my own design to the edging with inspiration from the lovely Victorian railings on Penarth pier. Take a look at my previous posts, Cardiff and Three things to see ideas and work in progress! Let me know what you think?

I have never blocked anything in my life but took the plunge using steam to show off the delicate pattern.

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.
