Here is the beautiful pineapple motif shawl I made a while ago. I made it for my Mom. It’s lacey crochet and I love the colour.
It is supposed to have tassels on the two sides, however I ran out of yarn. It was the second time I ran out of yarn so I was bit annoyed with me. I started the crochet shawl as a swatch in that colour. I liked it so I kept going. Then I got more of the same yarn to finish it, and as usual I miscalculated. Now my Local yarn shop doesn’t have any more of it 😦
The shawl has 13 pineapples in the last row and the edging is simple picot stitch.
It didn’t really need any edging but I like this. It makes the crochet shawl look more finished. Here are some more pics.
A close up:
Its perfect for summer nights as well (It gets boiling hot in India but is generally cool at night). I loved making this crochet shawl. It was extra special and warm as I made it for my Mom. She was here a few weeks ago and tried it and everything. She loves loves loves it of course. But she left it behind so I could make tassels and finish it off (soon, hopefully).
Also Mr.B and I have started dabbling in woodwork. I like that we spend time with each other making something other than a beautifully cooked chicken biryani.
We are trying a simple Photo frame first. Everything is going to be handmade here. We haven’t got any power tools. We got it all terribly wrong earlier. A few YouTube and internet visits later we have this…
It still needs to be joined. It is quiet off and not perfect but not bad for a first time, eh?
