Some people show their love, care or gratitude with food.
I show my love, care or gratitude with yarn.
I just finished up a shawl to show my gratitude to a very special young woman.
She's a friend of my daughter. She reached out and was there for my daughter in a very big way.
What she did means a lot and I hope this helps to express our appreciation.
She likes red. I hope she likes this. The variations of red in this yarn are gorgeous.
In person, the reds are much richer and prettier. But, for some reason, I always have trouble getting reds to photograph correctly. I took photos of it in different parts of the house and different lighting and these three came out the best. I tried to tweak them a little with editing to get them a little closer.
I crocheted it with about one and a half skeins of Serendipity Garden Yarn and a size "H" hook.
but in a different colorway. It's fun, easy and fairly quick to make.
I just had to count often to make sure I didn't do any mindless mistakes to throw it off.
I added a shell edge along all three sides. The shells were made with three double crochet stitches, a treble in the middle, and three more doubles. I did a slip stitch in between the shells...a stitch that's very short to help set off the height of the shells and create better scallops. The shell on the bottom point was slightly different. It was made with three doubles, 2 trebles, and three doubles.
