I'm pleased to show you my second completed shawl - the Icy Snowdrops (from the Snowdrop Shawl pattern):
I am doubly thrilled because this turned out so much better than I anticipated and I love the way it lays nicely on my shoulders. I am usually not so wild about stripes, but the darker, variegated stripes add depth and warmth to all that icy blue. Additionally, I added some beads for just a little bling (a gal can't go wrong with bling). It blocked well so it's got enough drape (considering it's worsted weight mohair), yet because of the mohair it's warm and stays in place. A very happy confluence of yarny events, if you ask me.
|See the beads? Size 6 silver-lined Japanese|
And now, mes amis, I have a wee bloggy giveaway, not only to keep crochet's party month chugging along at full speed (which party really is year-round in these parts), but also to celebrate my latest pattern publication - the Blottir Bebe Snuggler.
From anyone who leaves a bloggy comment between now and the end of the day next Thursday, March 28, either about the spring edition of Crochet! Magazine or how you're celebrating crochet in March (or both, you can be chatty), I'll choose one name randomly drawn from the hat to win a copy of the magazine + one skein of Caron Simply Soft, to get you started on making a snuggler for someone you know who's expecting. Maybe I'll even get George Bailey to lend a helping paw when I conduct the drawing.
See - he's all ready and set to go. To where, I have no idea.
Make certain you head on over to Wisdom Begins in Wonder and see what our very own Wonder Why Gal has been up to this week ... along with all her fibery friends.
