I have a weakness for shawls... "I feel pretty, Oh so pretty!" when I wear a shawl, and I like the warmth, too. Yes, even though I live on an island in the Caribbean, I get cold when the temperature dips down to 75ºF.
I finished my shawl today, by trimming the fringe, something I really really like. Any jokes about "lunatic fringe, Dave, and I won't "be good" this weekend, I'll tease you unmercifully, no matter what FB says. You are forewarned! haha!
Beholdeth, pictures of my shawl, as requested and modeled by DD.
Daughter again modeling the shawl. By the way, she is a woman's size extra small.
I made it with Carons Simply Soft, Colonial blue, if I'm not mistaken. It is really prettier than how it's showing up here in this late afternoon light.
And here is the fringe. I make an almost perfect fringe. I am finicky about it, since I like it so much. I like it nice and neat, and will redo it several times if I have to. I used to have instructions for making "the perfect fringe" on the net; not that it exists... *smile* Until I post it again, a tip for a good fringe is to pull quickly and evenly and it should fall into place as it should, and not with strands all criss-crossed.
Thanks for looking at my shawl. Hope you have a great weekend.
