Here’s my Danish tie shawl. Is it finished? I don’t know – it’s blocking. The crocheted edge in the pattern is rad. But I can’t decide about it. Decide for me, please, people. It’ s a two-color, deliciously fiddly edging, what with chaining one color, dropping it (off the hook! completely!), chaining the other one over top, fastening to the shawl edge, then going back to the first color and doing it again. It looks like a bicolor rope around the edge. But still. I’m just not so sure.
It is large, large enough to tie around my waist without added cords. Once it is dry, I will try that again and ponder. It messes up the corners, obviously. Every inch of yarn in it is handspun. The maroon is 100% mohair and it’s worming a lot, but I’ve decided to love the texture it adds.
Here’s another finished object, too, which could not be unveiled here until it had been received by its intended owner, my mother. This was a fun one — I like lace on a garter ground quite a bit. My mom seems to like it. My mom’s pretty discriminating about handmade items, so I am glad this one was a hit. The yarn was delightful, as it turned out (it’s a 2/28 silk from Colourmart, not available anymore.)
Details on both projects can be found at my Ravelry page,which you know, you can’t see if you’re not a Raveler. I figure if you’re not a member you’re probably not that interested in the details anyway.
