My youngest son has been doing a bit of photography for his artwork in the past week so I asked him to help me out with some pictures for my Aphrodite Shawl. Had to giggle when we were done as I think he was busy taking shots of mum instead of the shawl.
There were quite a few on just my shoulder and when I pointed out that we wanted the shawl in the pictures he managed to chop of half my head in most pictures. Gotta love it!
I was going to have my daughter re-do it but then I thought, oh, it doesn't matter and it would have meant waiting ages before showing you. So here we go.
The Aphrodite Shawl.........(free pattern here)............
I used Patons Classic Totem in 8 ply, Colour 4320 (Dark Purple) and a 6mm hook.
I decided not to block the shawl after several people commented that it looked nice the way it was. (Blocking would change the bottom a bit). I plan to make a small tie at the front with some crystal beads as this is a present for someone and I wanted to add a personal touch. (Will update with a picture of that if I get the chance later).
Overall, this was a fun and easy project and I think I would like to make it again.
I tried to do some sewing yesterday but a certain young lady kept trying to help. Needless to say I think a lot of my crafting is going to be a bit slow in the next month or so. Here she is taking a rest on the cushion my daughter made me for my birthday. Hmmmm.
Hugs and smoochies all, hope you week is going well.
