Make It Monday ~ 9 Inning Wrap Giveaway ~ 5/11/15

 
 
I'm calling this shawl the "9 Inning Wrap".  I was settling in to watch a Pirates baseball game on TV and decided I wanted to work on something other than granny squares for my Sunny Blue Hawaii.  I knew exactly what yarn I wanted to use.  I received this package of yarn in my Ravelry Swap from Renee.
 

I took a break during the 7th Inning stretch to take a picture of my progress.  It is a chunky yarn and I used one of my large hooks (my Mom calls them "crowbars') to crochet with.  I loved the feel of this yarn.  It was so silky smooth to work with.

 
 
And here is the finished project which took me exactly 9 Innings to finish.
 




Gotta love my little model :)

 
 This yarn was given to me, so in return I'd like to give this wrap to one of you!

  1. That wrap looks amazing in those gorgeous colours and I can't believe how quickly you made it - WOW!!! I've been blogging about things made for a Charity Garden Party- if I could do what you do I think I'd have a few more items to sell!! Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace It's a super give-away too but I think the postage to England would be a bit too expensive unfortunately :(
