Remember the shawl I started working on in February? It actually only took me a couple of weeks or so to finish it! I brought it with me to work on while we were in Denmark and I basically didn’t stop working on it. It worked up so fast and it was a pleasure to make it. I’m aaaalmost tempted to make another one but I don’t really need any more shawls. ;-)
I love the gradient of the yarn, going from a deep raspberry pink through light pink to dark purple. It just makes me happy to look at it. I do love pink. :-)
And the texture of the pattern is really nice too. I think what is showing in the picture is actually the ‘wrong’ side, but I really like the ridges that formed from crochet around the post (crochet lingo, sorrynotsorry).
If you make the shawl, the This Is Me shawl (free pattern) by Wilma Westenberg, I would suggest writing out the full sequence of the rows to be stitched, because it can be a bit confusing, especially if you are new-ish to crochet. For example, row 13 is actually worked like row 3 but that is actually a repeat of row 2, so it can get a bit confusing. So write out the full sequence to make it easier for yourself. :-)
