Follow-up Friday

maRRose - CCC --- Bridal Shawl-Summer Shawl-117This is a very happy “Follow-up Friday”-post, because I’ve finished my second bridal shawl – the “Love&Kisses” shawl – and I’m so, so pleased with the way it turned out!

I have to admit: it was not an easy ride and probably the project that I’ve had to frog (1,5 to 2 hours work per occasion, grrrr …..) the most ever, but every time I look at this red beauty now, I’m glad I did – it was really worth it.

The measurements are roughly 180 x 55 cm (71 x 22 inches) and I’ve used approx. 1.000 metres of the “Colortwist”, a 100% cotton.

The fabulous yarn I used is a made-to-order Colortwist, available from Echtstudio.

Both bridal shawls are now patiently waiting for my sweet friend (and her approval) …..

Wonderful, talented crocheters that you can find here and here.
And if you’re also one of them – please leave a link in the comments; I’d love to see what you’re working on!

  • Totally stunning! My WIP list is surprisingly short at the moment, in fact I think it’s actually restricted to the crochet dolls I’m currently working on. I have MANY more projects in the pipeline, materials all here ready to go, but I like to finish one project at a time usually:)

    • Thank you so much! I’m really pleased with it too ….
      I kind of envie people – like you – who can work on one project at a time.Can’t wait to see your crochet dolls (love your mandala)! Marianne xx

  • Beste Marianne, ik vind het allemaal erg leuk en mooi , om te zien wat je maakt,
    Ik heb alleen een “probleempje” dat alles in het Engels gaat en ik “zit ” niet op faceboek of blogs.. enz…
    Ik had je ook nog een vraag willen stellen, over je mooie “restdraadjes kunst werkjes” maar dat is nu ook lastig voor mij.
    Kan ik je daarover emailen?

    met vriendelijke groet,

    • Fijn dat je mijn werk waardeert, Els – daar word ik altijd erg blij van!
      Wat de taal betreft: als het gaat om patronen, dan is google translate vaak een uitstekende hulp – ik heb het wel eens getest, maar als je een beetje thuis ben in de haaktermen, dan moet je er zo eigenlijk al wel uitkomen.
      Vanzelfsprekend mag je me een mailtje sturen – Marianne xx
