Happy Friday lovely readers!
First week back to work and it has been crazy, I feel like my brain is about to explode! But on the bright side, I did finish my Swaye shawl! Yay! It’s beautiful, it’s soft and I love it!!! The colours are super snazzy and I have a feeling that I won’t be putting it down for a while!
I hope you all had a great week, and that you enjoyed plenty of craft time. We don’t have Thanksgiving here, but I hope for all my american friends that you had a great Thanksgiving yesterday and that you all have a great weekend as well!
I have been on holidays this week and it has been really nice. Plane time, as you may know, is my favourite for extra-relaxing crochet time! Yay!
Here is the Swaye shawl, from Addydae Designs. I’ve already talked about Deanne before, she is the amazing designer behind the Blurre shawl that I’ve already shown you earlier this year. I participated in her crochet along and she was so lovely and gifted a pattern to everyone who participated. I chose the Swaye shawl, and I’m in love with it, possibly even more than with my Blurre!
The yarn I’m using as well is beautiful, it’s from Fibre Revolution, who is a Brisbane based indie dyer. This was the yarn from August’s yarn club and the colour names are Gold Coast (the bright blue one) and Sandy Bay (the pale blue neutral one) , after two gorgeous beaches in Australia. The other contrasting colour I used is a bright pink colour 4 ply from Spotlight.
I’m loving everything about this, and all the yarns are just so soft, it’s going to be great to wear this shawl!
Have a great weekend!
Happy Wednesday lovely readers!
I’m a bit sad to announce that we had no trick or treaters yesterday, so I was a bit sad but on the other hand, more lollies for us, so still a win!
Today I’ve finished my Liula stole. The design is from Emma Potter from Potter & Bloom and I absolutely adored it! I started this last week on the 24th and I literally could not put it down! Emma was also organising a crochet-along for Liulas FO so I was able to enter it on her Ravelry thread. It was super fun to see everyone’s FO, they all look so great!
Here is mine, pretty good right?
What I loved is that the pattern calls specifically for a yarn cake in 4 ply, and I have to say I had been dying to try one of those! I actually found out that they sell some at Lincraft, which is an Australian craft store chain and I had to go and buy one. Because the Liula pattern is inspired by leaves, I chose rather autumnal colours and I love my new stole! I think it will get quite a bit of wear, especially because it’s still pretty cold here during spring.
Have you participated in any CAL recently? I’d love to know about them!
Happy Monday lovely readers!
I have finally finished my virus shawl using the beautiful Holst Garn Coast in Harbour, Marlin and Nimbus. I totally love those colours and they do really go so well together 😊
The yarn is also super nice to work with I really love the feel of it and it was great to work on in the plane as the pattern is super repetitive. The shawl ended up being quite big and I used all three skeins.
The pattern of course is the beautiful virus shawl. This had been on my list for ages, and I’m so glad I’ve finally finished it!
I hope you guys are having a great week 😘
So I am a bit late on my usual posting schedule, but the weekend has been so hectic with the move and we still don’t have internet, probably until next week 😦 so I am posting on my phone today and for the rest of the week.
I did get time today to finish the springtime versatile shawl though, and it was lovely to finally be able to sit in our new house and get some crochet time 🙂
Anyway, here it is!
I love that I can wear it in so many different ways! This shawl definitely is named appropriately!
I hope that you guys have all had a great Anzac Day.
Last week, Brenna over at Crochet539 posted a pattern for the Springtime Versatile shawl. I immediately really liked the look of it, and as I lost my scarf last year when I went to Tasmania, I was on the lookout for a new pattern to make. This is it! With the weather getting cooler here, this was the perfect time to make a start.
The colours I have chosen are yellow and purple, I really like this combo and I think it will brighten the darker winter days. I’m already past the half way point, so hopefully I’ll be finished soon 🙂 you can follow this project on my Ravelry page.
Thanks again Brenna for this beautiful pattern! I can’t wait to wear my new shawl 🙂
