I have to thank my dear friend Tina of Peacefully Knitting for inspiring this week’s work-in-progress. She shared a post on the Elise Shawl by Crochet in Coloron facebook and I feel instantly, head-over-heels, in love with this crochet pattern. It is a quick and simple crocheted shawl with absolutely stunning results.
The yarn I’ve chosen to use is Debbie Bliss Party Angel in color 15505, which is a laceweight, because the deep merlot color is exactly what I was looking for. And hey, a little sparkle never hurts either. :-D Instead of the 5.5mm hook recommended, I’ve moved down to a 5mm crochet hook and am quite happy with how the fabric of the shawl is working up.
It has been a while since I’ve picked up a crochet hook so it is a very fun and satisfying project to work on and is the absolute perfect project for a storm day. I’m looking forward to pouring a nice cup of tea, snuggling up in a quilt by the fire, and working some more on it this afternoon.
Stay cozy all!
