… I had a crash for this "starry sky" (this is what my eyes see!!!) shawl…
….. may I have a try ?????
I never crocheted something so serious like a piece of garment (apart from some easy scarves!)…… I was thinking….. I was scared….
…..but the chart was showing simple stitches and I had the right yarn to use for this new adventure !!!
….and yes, I have dared!!!!! Yippie!!!!!
The first star was really simple (is the one at the base of the shawl!), so I decided to crochet more stars….
…..I just loved to work on this satisfying project and I really liked to see the shawl growing little by little….
….and yesterday night I could see it finished!!!!!!!
This morning I had a little time to take some photos of the final product outside in the garden, where the sun was shining (right now, instead, it's raining cats and dogs : wet season!!!!)…..
The fact is that now I need to block it…..any suggestions???? The yarns used are 100% acrylic, so what is the better way to beautify these lovely stars??? Thank you for any tip you will offer me!!!
This will be a Christmas gift for….I cannot say it, even tough the recipient is not a regular reader of my blog, but you never know, right?
My "dummy lady" kindly offered herself to model the shawl for the last pics…
…..what do you think????
Happy weekend, xxxx Alessandra
