Sir Husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary by going to Savannah, GA, for two nights. Yes, without kids! 😀
Since we will be able to go out to a nice dinner…alone, I wanted to wear something nice. I decided I needed this Crocus Bud Crocheted Shawl. It was very easy to make. I used a size larger hook and added just a few more stitches to get the right gauge.
Blocking was difficult. I used our kingsized bed and it took me over an hour to block it. I never did get it to the right size. I am disappointed in the width of it, but other than that it is nice.
I am not sure if I will try and reblock it. I will probably make another one twice the size, in black.
Here is the finished product.
See how narrow the width is. It needs to be twice that size.
It isn’t too bad, once it is wrapped around the shoulders.
This is the outfit that I will be wearing with the shawl.
