Do you ever notice a link between what you are making and the world around you, a kind of theme? sometimes it creeps up on you and then you realize where the inspiration is twinkling at you from.
the little things that catch our eye every day and call to us.
See the pretty mauve flowers in both pictures, I was very tempted to add a little strip of mauve here! but I carried on with the oatmeal colour, which I'm also loving. This is my current favourite neutral colour. It keeps on appearing in my projects.
I spent some time here quietly crocheting, then I noticed the colour of the head board (a pretty table cloth!) the flowers and the colours of my shawl!
This was a lovely rythmic pattern to work with. The shells are very addictive! Sometimes watched by you know who, until the excitement became too much. A sweet little spot to snooze don't you think. It's all moved around again now!
okay, here she is my september shawlette, finished in october. I had a big 'to tassle or not to tassle' moment, but it felt as though it needed something else. My blocks of colour were quite heavy and I wanted to balance the blue, without making more stripes.
the tassles were fun, my first ever tassles!!
lessons learn't, oh yes.....
mind which way your shells are facing when you change colour,
and use as soft and snuggly a wool as possible,
nice and drapey is good!
I added a blue strip along the top to bring it all together,
but don't look to closely
as it might be the wrong way round!
I am practising 'done but not perfect' these days.
.......right what's next,
