….The floral shawl is here !!!!

During this last week I was working on the shawl for myself and I was crocheting the last floral motif right this morning!!!!






It has been a lovely project to work with. No difficult stitches to crochet and I found it satisfying to join each flower when almost done. I was even good enough to remember to trim in the ends when the new flower was joined to the shawl!!!!

The colours chosen for this soft accessorise were 5, but each row is formed by 16 flowers, so I had to decide for a 6th shade…. For a long while it was orange…







….. but this morning ( I know, it sounds a little bit crazy!) I decided that I didn't like orange anymore, so I cut the previous ones and I crocheted new ones in a delicate green hue ….



…… and I reached the end of my shawl !!!!! Look !!!!





….. If you know me well, imagine what's going on right now ?

A new project, just sketched ……


Happy Weekend, xxxx Alessandra ;oD

  2. that's a pretty motif, makes a lovely shawl. I think the colour swap was a good one. Easier to wear maybe. Enjoy, Heather x

  9. What a beautiful scarf. I like the colors and think that it's good wearable without the orange ones. I really like orange but with the colors you used it's great. Wishing you a lovely weekend with you're loved ones. Love from Tinie

  24. What a lovely shawl. I like the green colour a lot, but orange would have been all right as well. Not that terrible after all.

    Thanks for sharing the making off.
    Sometime, in a very far future, when time will be no problem, I'll try to make one myself, but before that I'll have to start on your special blanket (the one I 've written about on my blog and I've been wanting to make for ages)

    Have a nice sunday! How is the weather over there? Is it Always good or does it change from time to time?

    1. Hi Brigitte !!!!
      Orange or green, at the end it's only a question of taste. I love orange, but that particular hue was not of my taste!!!!! ;oD
      Now it's late afternoon in JK ant it's sunny. This morning , instead, was raining a lot!!! Crazy weather !!!!

  25. Your brain must be in overdrive all the time and your hands working overtime. I can barely get a dishcloth crocheted most days. :) Have a good week. Tammy

  26. Ciao Ale ! Che lavoro veloce e carino, stai facendo molti scialli, uno più bello dell' altro . Io preferisco la versione con il verde , che è anche di una bellissima tonalità , l 'arancione lo userei poco, ma come dici tu è sono una questione di gusti . Sono curiosa di sapere a che altro stai lavorando, io ho ripreso in mano i pennelli e ho le mani in pasta su diversi lavori ! Oggi però mi sono dedicata al giardino .
    Spero che la tua domenica sia trascorsa bene !Un abbraccio e a presto
    Maddalena

  27. Bellissimo, Alessandra! (that's my best Italian, hehe!). The colours worked out great - it's lovely to make something for yourself for a change - enjoy it!!

  28. I like both versions, with the orange and with the green, but the right version is obviously the one you'll wear most :)

  29. Dear Ale,

    You asked me for a translation button in my blog.
    I had one at first, but I didn't work. Especially for you I put on a new one.
    Could you please try it out and let my know whether it is doing its job?

  30. Ale, this is so beautiful! I loved the pop of orange but the sweet green is a nice elegant touch too. Changes the shawl's personality!
    ps -- you were wise to weave in the ends as you go -- I try to do that too so that the end isn't a bear! :)
