Hip Hip Hooray! This shawl is finally done!
I started it last spring and I should have finished it long ago.
All of the other South Bay Shawlettes I've made have crocheted up very quickly.
But, not this one! The fine, single ply lace Malabrigo yarn was a bit slippery
and I didn't enjoy crocheting this project with it. I took a lot of breaks from it.
But, I sure do love the colors and how it looks!
I crocheted it with a size "G" hook.
It's delicate and oh so soft.
The finished size is 66" across and about 36 inches long from the center top to the bottom point.
It's big enough to wrap around arms and shoulders or drapey enough to wrap loosely at the neck.
It's light enough to wear in warmer months on a slightly cool day or evening.
The beautiful colors, pattern and texture will be such a wonderful addition to an outfit.
It's like soft jewelry. And, I noticed that it goes with a lot of things.
It will soon be on it's way to a very special person...Patti.
She's my cousin's wife and she's one of the sweetest people you could ever meet.
She loves the beach and vibrant colors. I thought she'd love the colors in this yarn.
The blues and greens look like the gorgeous colors you see in photos of tropical islands like Bora Bora
...the lush green landscape and incredible blues in the water. So pretty!
I hope she likes it!
I made it with two skeins of Malabrigo Lace.
There was a total of 940 yards but I have a bit left over.
This was my first experience with Malabrigo and it definitely won't be my last.
Malabrigo comes in such gorgeous colors and it's SO soft.
