Roses and a purple bay

Hello everyone!
 
Thank you for stopping by :) Today I've got some really pretty photos of some roses. Yes! This time I was lucky and I got some photos before somebody stole them!
 

 
 
There are so many roses around here at the moment and there are so wonderful colours.

Now for the crochet part of my post:
 
 
Another shawl! This one is the South Bay Shawlette pattern. It's really similar to the Elise pattern which is one of my favourites.

 
This last photo came out a bit blurry and I didn't realise until I'd already put the shawl away.
The yarn is by Punta Yarns and is a merino sock yarn which is just the softest yarn. Their colourways are amazing too!
 
I hope you all have a very happy weekend filled with lots of crafts!
 
xoxo

  7. What a delight to gaze on those beautiful roses Elisabeth - aren't they the most perfect flower!
    Your shawl is so delicate - quite exquisite - and the colour! Magic!
    You have reminded me of a little one I knit ages ago - another thing that is stuffed in a drawer - I must rescue it and see what can be done with it before it suffocates in there!
    Thank you Elisabeth - I always enjoy my visits to your place!

  9. Are you serious about having the roses stolen?
    They are beautiful.
    The shawl is gorgeous, sock yarn is quite thin, how long did this take to make?
    thanks for the comment on my exposure..lol
    I do wonder sometimes if cats do know what they are doing, they are so inscrutable, but I love them.
