Sweet-Haus CAL- The Sunday Shawl Photo Shoot!

This beautiful shawl has been so much fun to make!  I have thoroughly enjoyed crocheting along with Margareta from At Margareta’s Haus.  This is our third project to crochet together with hopes of crocheting more:)

I just love how this shawl turned out.  The border really makes it a show stopper.I made up a quick teal dress to match that I am excited to wear on Sunday:)The blue really makes the burnt orange stand out:). To be honest, this is the first shawl that I have ever made for myself!  I can’t believe how much I like the way it drapes over my shoulders:). 

It looks equally as nice with a tee shirt and a pair of jeans for a casual look.  It is perfect for the slightly cool spring weather we have been having.  

I hope you have enjoyed watching as this shawl has stitched together.  I know that I have totally loved making it:)  I hope you will join us in our next stitching adventure!

Here a few pictures from a must have photo shoot:)!  Thanks goes to my beautiful daughter, Tassy, for taking these pictures.  Thanks Tass!

Life is SWEET!

You can find the pattern here on Ravelry if you want to make up a Sunday Shawl of your own.

Sweet-Haus CAL- Sunday Shawl Border

Good Monday morning to you!  Margareta from “At Margareta’s Haus” and I have been busily crocheting away on our beautiful Sunday Shawls this past week.  It is always fun to watch a project come together from a few small stitches to a beautiful piece of wearable art.

We are making this shawl from The Sunday Shawl pattern on Ravelry.   I am excited to be working on and finishing the beautiful, colorful border this week.The border really makes this shawl stand out.  It is so colorful and pretty.  The pattern is quite simple and easy to execute.  Even the bobble stitch is fairly simple, but really adds a “pop” to the rest of the rows:)It’s not hard. It is just a matter of pulling the stitches a bit longer and leaving the stitch on the hook while you add a few more.

It won’t be long now before this shawl is finished.  Next week the border will be done and it will meet the blocking station.  I think I will start my dress this week to finish the look….we will see:)

Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog.  I hope your day is SWEET!

Sweet-Haus CAL- The Sunday Shawl

The day has come!  I started my beautiful Sunday Shawl:)  I am excited to be crocheting along again with Margareta  from At Margareta’s Haus.  This is our third project with plans for more in the future.  

I know I am going to just love this shawl.  The rich burnt orange is so yummy:)
I like how the pattern is short and concise.  It starts by making a small triangle and adding a few stitches with each round.
It is a fairly simple pattern of half double crochet and treble crochet that works into this lovely pattern.   

Isn’t it so pretty?  If any of you want to join us, you can find the pattern on Ravelry here.  We are dividing the fun like this:

  • This week- Main color field
  • Next week- colorful edging
  • Third week- blocking

That’s it.  Totally doable:)!  I think that on my blocking week I will make a teal dress to match so I can wear it to church the next Sunday….I’m getting excited!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  You really do make my day SWEET:)

Sweet Haus CAL#3 – The Sunday Shawl

I am excited to be starting my third crochet along with Margareta from At Margareta’s Haus.  Why don’t you join us?   Last year we each made a Mandala Madness along with Helen at crystals and crochet.  It turned out so pretty!

We then continued the fun by joining in on the  Peacock Bag CAL by Lilly Bjorn Crochet.  This bag get compliments every time I go to the store!

And now, we are going to make The Sunday Shawl by Little Bee along with the Facebook group, Pippen Crochet.   The pattern is on Ravelry.com. Isn’t it beautiful?  

I have purchased my yarn and am ready to go.  I am using super wash merino wool.   Ooh, I am just in love with these luscious colors!! The main color is going to be the beautiful burnt orange/rust and the edging will be the other lovely colors.  

I must give a word of warning about online purchases though.  I ordered the orange from the same company, BUT when my happy box full of yarn arrived, I opened it only to find that the rusty orange color pictured online was really a barn yard red. Ugh!

So, I went to a local store and spent quite a bit more on the orange yarn in the picture.  I love it though, and they wound it into these SWEET cakes for me.  

I am excited to get started on this shawl.  If you are interested in joining us, we are going to start on February 6th.  That is several weeks away  so you will have time to gather your supplies:). 

I hope to be crocheting along with you soon!
