Here is my latest shawl
Even though I made it I can't help but stop and look at it and think wow :)
The pattern is so beautiful. (It's a free Drops pattern called Tranquility if you're interested)
The yarn is 100% silk DK and was a joy to work with. It's my second shawl with this yarn and I've still got one cone of it left - I'm already planning my next shawl!
And what do you think of my model?
After much pondering I finally decided to buy myself a mannequin and I am SO glad I did! She's the perfect model, never complains ;) She arrived this morning and I wasted no time in taking some photos!
Here was the before pic of the shawl:
Silk really gives in the blocking process so when I was making the shawl I wasn't too sure when to stop.
Over Easter in Granada I found a new yarn shop that I'd not been to before so I just had to call in :)
I got some cotton thread
and a new hook
I've not used Knit Pro soft grip hooks before. Knit pro wooden hooks are my favourite so I hope that this one being the same make will be just as good! How about you? What hooks do you like best?
