just for me….

…. a new shawl ….


…. no bright colours, but very soothing ones…. not my usual choice, I know….



I have to crochet (we'll see then, even because the centre of the flowers is not as the pattern dictates!) 4 stripes of 16 flowers each….


The book, where the inspiration comes from, is this one ….


…. and the pattern that made me say "awwwww!" is the following ….


In the meantime, my blanket is getting bigger and bigger…..
P.S. : Milena got inspired by the same pattern!!!!





…. since the previous show off, I've crocheted 12 stripes of shells!!!!!! ;oD

  5. I can imagine the choice of colors for your shawl, because working on your blanket (so beautiful) your eyes needs a more calm project, haha. But I am sure this becomes a shawl you will wear often. byebye

  10. Thats a coincidence!!! Yesterday I was thinking I'd like to make another shawl for myself ....although that is a bit of a joke....for myself indeed I bet by the time I finish it it'll have another destination! I've been mozzing around on blogland looking for a pattern. There are so many delicious patterns out there! I think the colours you have chosen are very wise as they go with a lot of other colours. The blanket ....what can I say but fabulous!

    keep well

    1. Thank you Andree'!!!! I know that the blanket is very bright and maybe I need some colours balance, so that's why the shawl is less dramatic!!!
      happy week to you, xxxxxx Ale

  35. How lovely two have two wips which are completely different colourwise. I always think it's nice to swap one project for another sometimes - depending on your mood.
