Snowdrop shawl in progress

32/52

I have 4 main crochet WIPs at the moment. I can only work on this in short spells and in good light because the yarn is quite fine and it's not all that easy to see the stitches. However, I'm very pleased with the way it's working up.

As one of the WIPs is almost finished (the ripple lap blanket for my Dad), I have just started a replacement in the form of a corner-to-corner blanket to use up the leftover yarn. I had no idea how much Dad's blanket would take, so there's quite a bit left. Anyway, it will make a blanket for G to snuggle under in the winter while watching TV.

Oh, wow, is that ever pretty!

The yarn is not cheap, but this is something I'm making for myself and one ball will be enough, so it's worth the expense.

That looks like fun. I guess the different colors are all on the same piece of yarn?

Yes, the colour changes along the length of the yarn so as you work with it, the colour of the fabric you're creating changes. It saves weaving in a multitude of ends!

Thanks. All the yarns in the Magic range are beautiful. I've bought another ball in a different colourway to make a scarf for my daughter for Christmas.

That's gorgeous. The way the colors shift with the curve of the shawl is stunning. Truly one of the prettiest yarn projects I've ever seen.

Lovely shawl. Delightful colours.

That really is something special. Your photos of your projects do rather make me want to learn crochet, even though I don't really have enough time even for the cross-stitch.

Delicious colors, and they show up well in that pattern.
