I’ve finally finished my Scheepjes Whirl Shawl (You’ll remember I wrote about it here). I’ve been concentrating on getting it finished instead of my Hygge recently but its now complete. It is a perfect little thing to wrap around your shoulders when the weather is sunny enough to sit in the garden and read a book, but not quite warm enough to only sit out in a t-shirt.
The yarn has been a dream to work with, it really does very slowly move from colour to colour and it was a very exciting moment when (in our holiday cottage in Denmark, WA) I reached the start of the “green” colour. My friend was asleep upstairs at the time, the next morning he said, “did I hear that you reached green last night…?!” haha! oops!
The pattern used for this shawl is the Atlantic Lace shawl, however I kind of got carried away, forgot to check the pattern and so ended up doing a bit of my own variation. I didn’t do the lace border, instead opting for a single row of v-stitches and a single (US) / double (UK) crochet row to finish it. I’m pleased with the finish, it looks clean!
It was nice enough in the garden to take some pictures, I think I got carried away!
Now I’m just going to enjoy wearing it….! :o)
I’m also working on a new Scheepjes Whirl Shawl using Blueberry Bam Bam. You can see a sneek preview in this post here
