Crochet Shawl

Good Sunny Morning Blog friends and followers.  Gosh! I was getting worried the sun had deserted this part of the world. We have had lots of snow from Tuesday.  The hills round us are covered THICK!! once again ... we have had rain till the water has been running off the fields flooding roads!!!   Anyway, today the sun is shining, I am going to enjoy it.
With the weather so miserable I needed to find something to do while sitting in the Lounge beside the roaring fire.  I found a couple of balls of yarn and decided to Crochet a Shawl/scarf so here is a finished shawl.

Close up of the design

 I watched a brilliant Video of instructions for the pattern.
If you go to YouTube and type in Crocheting with Fibre Spider you will get loads of different designs.  All the videos are good, the chap takes time to show and explain everything.  I am not really a Crocheter but I have managed lots of his designs. 
I did take a photo of the ball of Yarn to let you see how the colours mingle within the ball BUT!!! it does not seem to have uploaded ...that`s so strange!!!  The shawl did but not the Yarn .... Ahhhh!!!! Technology defies me!!!!!

That`s it for today, I hope the sun is shining where ever you are.
Thank you so much for dropping by, I really appreciate it.

  3. Hello Patricia,
    I've seen one of your shawls in real life and can say that it's fabulous. Not too big to be cumbersome, but large enough to do the job.

  4. Hi Patricia, What a gorgeous crochet shawl, it looks really intricate. I have always wanted to try crochet, I will have to try watching Youtube for 'how to's'.
    I hope you got lots of lovely sunshine, we have had some here today too.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. Hello Patricia,
    I’m not last! I love your shawl! We have certainly had shawl weather this last winter! Spring has come today though. Let’s hope it stays a while!
    Will look on You Tube as I’m in a crochet rut just doing small blankets!
    Love Myra xx

  7. Pretty crochet Patricia, I love Crochet and always have something on the go. The colours are beautiful in this wool.
    I laughed about the dog standing in the hearth as Alfie does that too when we put the Gas flame fire on....tinkers they are xx

  8. This is a beautiful shawl Patricia, lovely colours and the pattern is gorgeous. I am currently crocheting a pram blanket for our Practice Manager who is due her second daughter in June xx

  9. Hello no Myra you are not last but I think I am!

  10. Hi Patricia
    No Margaret you aren't the last, I have visited for ages (sorry Patricia) but thought I would just see what Patricia has been up to. The shawl is beautiful, what lovely colours and I can imagine it's soft and light too. Perfect for this weather. I don't crochet but can appreciate the amount of work involved.
    Love Diane xxx
