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:)
