Må jeg præsentere / Allow me to introduce
I får lige nogle ordentlige billeder af det.... Først på hotelsengen.
The shawl dried, was packed and brought to Portugal, where I'm at a congress right now. It was given away, and the recipient was very happy.
Here you have some proper pictures of it. First on the hotel bed.
Ialt brugte jeg 85 gram Drops Lace til sjalet. I den store størrelse. De sidste pinde på kanten talte jeg masker, og der var 600+. Ikke noget at sige til, at det føltes som nogle meget lange pinde! Aflukningen er hæklet, og tog 2 timer....... Det var skønt, da det var færdigt!
I'm in love with the border, that was the part of the shawl taking most time to make. It is almost magic, how a little skein of yarn can turn into something so beautiful, don't you think?
I used a total of 85 grams of Drops Lace for the shawl. For the large size. On the last rows, I tried counting the stitches, and each row had 600+. No wonder these rows felt very, very long!
The cast-off is crocheted, and it took me 2 hours to do....... It was a great feeling when it was finally done!
Finally a picture in the sun. On the loveliest, green grass. This time the shawl was totally without mistakes (I didn't find them, anyway!). The stitch number was correct all the way, and I'm quite proud.......
