Well, thank you all you lovely people for all your great comments on my last post - after reading them, I decided to carry on and finish the shawl - yay!! Thank you especially to 'Anonymous' (who are you, oh helpful one?!) for suggesting a shawlette and ways I could wear it. I carried on, and I finished it, and I love it! (You were right!)
If anyone is interested in the details, here they are:
Yarn: 3 x 50g balls of Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran in Robin's Egg (Shade 209)
The pattern is in Japanese and a symbol one - I've never used a pattern like that before, but I found it surprisingly easy. (Maybe I was doing it completely wrong - who knows - I was happy anyway!)
I'm not sure what size hook I was supposed to use, and I didn't do the number of rows specified - I did as much as the yarn I had would allow.
I had a bit of a shawlette photo-shoot in the park... so here are more pictures! Sorry for being a poser....!!!
I'll probably wear it like that quite a bit. (Didn't really know what to do with my arms in these pictures - so if they look a bit random, that'll be why!)
I'll probably NOT wear it like this quite so often...!! ;o) (Had to be done....!)
This will be my August Monthly Make. I'm glad I didn't rip it apart - I'm rather loving it. It's very warm and cosy too. I'm thinking I might crochet a brooch to hold it together in various positions. If I do, I'll be sure to show you...!
