Some of you may remember me crocheting a Crocus Bud shawl a while ago. Well, I finally finished it several weeks ago, but because of the holidays I just haven’t had a chance to show you any pictures about it.
It was such a great thing to have while on holiday, it’s just so practical and versatile (when it’s a bit chilly, it’s amazing what a difference it makes if you just have warm shoulders!).
Already it’s has seen so much wear I’ve noticed it has started felting a little bit. Although it’s not very noticeable, it is slightly concerning. Perhaps the yarn (Malabrigo Lace) is just a bit too delicate for such heavy-use item?
But whatever the cause, I’m sure the solution is to get back to work and knit more shawls so that I don’t have to wear the same one all the time!
