Painters have come and gone!!! Cleaning up finished too!!! phew..... too hot for cleaning.
I think I started this shawl about six months ago.
It was meant to have been a gift for my Cookie baby's grandmother ( my counterpart) who lives in Florida. However as it grew and as it got nearer to the date that my daughter and grand-daughter were going on their holiday to Florida (that was April) I began to have doubts about it and whether it would be the right sort of gift and I turned to this instead and put the shawl to one side.
Blocking was rather awkward as my largest space available is the spare bed. As you can see I had to go down the sides too.
I actually ran out of thread so I had to forgo the last row (little trebols). I think it still looks nice.
I used a 4.00 hook and a new thread I had never used before but I will certainly use again!
It is a 3 ply cotton thread and a delight to work with.
The end results modeled by Cookie baby (aka Rebecca)
I am off now to enjoy my holiday delights.....cleaning my oven....and then the pool and in that order.
