First let me thank you for all the lovely comments on my weaving how-to post. Bloggers love a good how-to don't they? Are you sick of my shawls yet? These are my latest. It takes me about 8 hours each, give or take an hour to complete a shawl. Some shawls are so simple, but others the yarn breaks and breaks, which makes the whole process a lot longer. You can tell my life is ever so exciting as I am churning these babies out left and right.
I have been weaving obsessed as you can see. Maybe I should rename my blog to Mereweaves. There has been very little knitting here and the only crochet I have done was the edge I put on the shawl below, after I took the picture. The shawl above was made from you guessed it...Universal Yarns Classic Shades in Wine. Love the color, but I will tell you this yarn was constantly pulling apart on me. I was getting very frustrated but was able to get it finished, and I think it looks pretty nice.
This purple shawl was made from Berroco Lustra, silk yarn and a bit of mohair. It is a lot more beautiful in person, the color is amazing. I took this picture in the late afternoon in the shadows so it is not all that lovely based on this picture.
I have at least one more shawl to finish before I ship these to my sister. Then I think I need to get a little motivated on a crochet project. I have been searching for something to knock my socks off and I may have found it in the latest issue of Interweave Crochet. If you are a crochet fan I think you will love this magazine, there are several projects I would like to make in it so I bet you would find something to motivate you, too. I would love to know what project you are working on that knocks your socks off!
Hope you all had a great weekend and are staying warm if you are in the US. If it is chilly in Florida I know it is chilly where you are. Have a great week.
