Crochet: Salmon Shawl has finally been completed…
It took a little longer than I had anticipated
it was worth it.
Completing the Salmon Shawl
means I have tapped into one of my 2011 goals;
to make some clothes for myself.
This Japanese pattern is actually easy to follow;
the tricky part for me
was trying to work out how to join all of the
salmon flowers together.
For the life of me I could not get my head around it.
I spent a whole day
trying to get the last 3 lines of flowers together
(there are only 6).
it only took a 10 min You Tube break to resolve
whatever mental block I had
(yay for gypsy-pirate music).
By the end of day
all of the flowers were happily brushing petals.
Once all of the lovely flowers were together,
all I had to do
was crochet the pretty border
