Grinda Shawl #2

I love being able to check off Christmas list presents. Don’t you? I am especially happy to check off another beautiful Grinda Shawl. I used a Scheepjes Whirl yarn in the most beautiful shades of cream and blue.

It is always easier to crochet or sew something the second time around. The language is clearer and the stitches are familiar.

When my dear husband asked me to make his mother a shawl along with the shawl for my mother, I knew that it would be no problem at all. In fact, I welcomed the opportunity to see this shawl made up in a different color scheme.

I absolutely LOVE the the subtle gradients from cream to royal blue. It looks so beachy.

Once again, I fell in love with the pretty lace edging. I am definitely going to keep this little pattern in my arsenal of edge stitches:)

And I just know that you have been anxiously awaiting seeing both of these gorgeous shawls together. Well, wait no longer. Here they are–

Aren’t they so pretty? They can only be prettier by adding the dear SWEET faces of the two mothers I love the most in the whole world!❤️❤️. It is going to be a very Merry Christmas this year!

The Grinda Shawl is a free pattern from Lilla Bjorn Crochet.

A Christmas Gift with Grinda

I finished my Grinda Shawl. Yea!! It really didnt take too long at all. I started back at the end of September and have only worked on it every now and then. Here it is finished and ready for my mother for Christmas!

Isn’t it lovely? I know she is going to be so happy with it. I really liked how it looked from beginning to end, but the blocking of any crocheted project really adds the finishing touch.

As you can see the lace to the left has not been blocked and the nice, straight, and airy lace to the right has been blocked. Just a quick shot of steam is all takes. Just make sure you don’t touch your iron to the actual threads.

Isn’t it funny what different lighting does to color? The first two pictures were taken in the afternoon while this final photo shoot was taken in the morning. The top two are more accurate as far as color goes.

Oh well, A deep plum is beautiful too! I hope you can see the hearts in the bottom row of the shawl. These will be a reminder that my mother is well loved by me and so many others.

I think the edging really finishes the edge nicely. I may try to add this to another project someday. It is easy an beautiful!

I was so happy to show my husband this delicate shawl. I held it up and asked what he thought. He said he loved it and then added, “Aren’t you going to make one for my mom too?” Sooo….

Here I go with Grinda Shawl #2! Lol:)

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my blog today. I hope your day or evening is SWEET!
