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!

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 :(ReplyDelete
