Orange

I have finished my first Christmas gift for this year:
 
 
 
 
 
It's the same pattern as the pink shawl I posted on Thursday.
 
I have made this one for my aunt and the yarn is Rowan Kid Classic.
 
 
 
 
 
I've made it quite big so she can wear it however she wants.
 
I love making triangle shawls from the bottom up so that the pattern stripes across the shawl. What kind of shawl patterns do you like best?

This week my post lady brought me a package:
 
 
Yarn to my front door :)
 
I bought this from Black Sheep Wools. They are a great online retailer, I love the selection of yarns they have to offer. The do free postage from time to time and I love to take advantage of that offer!
 
Where do you  buy your yarns from?

Have a lovely day!

  17. Hello:
    Thank You very much for having stopped at my blog.I also do with pleasure,because,as I can see,You make the wonderful things and present them here.
    The shawl is wonderful-fantastic crochet pattern and the color in the Autumn mood.
    I can say-I have never tried to make such things,but I have made the other kind of crocheting,which I'll be trying to show in my blog in the days to come.
    I do hope I'll learn more from Your Pretty Wool-Work.
    Warm Greetings from Sweden
