It's finished (almost)!

Slightly excited - my shawl is almost done!  Yes, less than a month after starting it, I finished the last row this afternoon.  Now there is just the boring task of sewing the ends in.  However, I did get the 7 year old to take a sneaky peak of me holding it against me this afternoon for your viewing!

So... from this

To this

To this!

And I finished it with some shell edging, which I've never tried before.  I used my Mollie Makes Crochet book and it was the easiest thing ever - just took hours to go round the whole thing!  It's almost big enough to be a blanket!

Thanks to the wonderful Pixie for her inspiration and help with getting me started.

Stay safe, and warm, in this awful weather

  1. love it and so well done on the edging....xx

  2. It is beautiful Ginny, really beautiful. However, I have to make a complaint, your previous post has resulted in a further yarn purchase to make my own shawl - you inspire me to get myself into all sorts of trouble!! I can see why you love this shawl though, the colours are lovely together - you have a great eye! xx

  3. Woweeeee!
    Such utterly lovely colours x

  4. Hello deary.....oooh the shawl looks just wonderfully cosie, i love the colours, isnt it just the most loveliest and easiest project to do, and quite a quick make too also......i really must make myself another one, perhaps with matching wristies next time, ooh thats a good idea.
    A beautiful shawl indeed.

    Huggy hugs
