Crocheted in Purple
Posted 10 June 2006 - 05:31 PM
So I picked my colors and I made another bullion stitch pincushion, since I needed to practice more on the edging, which was the hardest part.
Another item in purple is this shawl I made several months ago. I had not posted about this, I modeled it before I sent it to my Autumn Secret Pal. She disappeared halfway through the swap, but I sent it anyway, since I didnt know if she just had a temporary problem. Unfortunately, she did vanish and of course, I wish I had not sent this purple shawl. Even if it was just a simple shawl, I liked it so much in pretty variegated purple. I've been crocheting another one, but it has remained in my WIP stash, and I'll get back to it when the weather starts to get cold...
More photos in my blogpost. Thanks for looking!

Thank you! The thread just seems to look silky in the photo. Yes, I'm making another one in the same color, since I really like it!
They are both beautiful! The shading on the shawl gives it a silky look. I don't know if that makes sense. Is the new one you're making the same color?

I just winged the shawl. I started with a long chain the length of my shoulders and arms. The mesh stitch is done in ch 5 loops, forming a triangle. The edging is simply 3 hdc's in each space, and ch 1 in between. The thread I used is our local size 8 cotton thread.
