Crocheted shawl

More than a year ago, I started crocheting a shawl in Vinnis cotton; read about it here.  100 squares later, I've finally finished it!  Crocheting with cotton is difficult and slow-going - the cotton 'splits' and you don't get very far working with such thin thread.

It's really pretty but I don't love it.  I've learnt that I don't like having to constantly adjust and fix my clothing during the day...endlessly tugging and straightening things.  Shawls fall off my shoulders, so I regularly have to straighten them.  Nah, not for me.  I'll wear it when I'm doing a lot of sitting still, like at Bible Study or at work. 
Next project - a poncho for winter...hopefully no tugging or straightening required!

  1. Your shawl came out beautifully Ali ... I do agree with you about clothes that you constantly have to re-adjust. It will work beautifully when we are scrapbooking.
