Nordic Shawl Ta-Dah!


Good morning, my lovely creative friends, and apologies for the delay in my Bloomin’ Crochet-A-Long post. But I just couldn’t write another blog post until this WIP was complete:


Ta-dah! Da dee dee dah! La dee dah! Yep, my pretty Nordic shawl has me singing with joy!


I spent yesterday afternoon weavi n g...i n...zzzzzz....

Oh, sorry, I drifted off - by the time I finished, the daylight was gone. 



How I would love to show you soothing images of me relaxing in my garden wearing this beautiful shawl...artistic, well-lit photos of this pastel item draped casually over the back of a garden swing...but this is England, this is February, this is the stormiest, greyest, wettest winter in ages. So...


Here is Little Flower, my sleepy little model, watching the rain in her pyjamas.


She loves this shawl; I might have to make a mini version for her!

I’ll keep it short n’ sweet today...I need to give my littlest sweetheart some cuddles. And I need to catch up with what you all are hooking for the CAL this week, too! Please link up below!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love,

xoxo Chrissie xoxo

  3. It looks fantastic, and I think Little Flower deserves one of her own. She is a darling model. I can not link as my hook has been quite dormant.

    Hugs and Happy Valentine's Day.

  16. So, so gorgeous! I've admired this shawl on a few blogs now and I love how each one I've seen has been totally different from the one before, as everyone has used different colours. Yours is really lovely. x

  18. It is fabulous and so is your model. I like the way you get her to wear it and you take the photo, I usually go the other way round and wear the item and then give photographic instructions to a pre-schooler!! Either sway seems to work. I bet you are really pleased. Jo x

  24. Your shawl is beautiful Chrissie and I love the choice of colours that you have used for the border, I am sure that your little one would love one of her own!!

  32. Hello lovely lady I think you've created a beauty here to match your beautiful self. Absolutely love it!! I'm sure there will be plenty of sunshine in the spring to flaunt this baby, but for now your little model did a Stirling job. I know if it was little Es, there would be no getting it back. Well done you I'm even more excited to start mine now. Sending much love xxx

  33. Your shawl is gorgeous! I cannot believe the weather in the UK and US and saw this morning in the news that the two storms are indeed connected over the Atlantic. Wow this shawl at least will keep you in a happy place in such stormy weather.

  34. Chrissie how heavenly this is and how gorgeous your little Peep looks in it, she could be a model. You have made such a wonderful job of it Chrissie and should be really proud of yourself, I am hoping one day, with lots of practise, I will be able to do half a good a job as you have. Have a wonderful weekend, big hugs and loves, keep cosy and toasty.

  35. Very classy use of colour - well done Chrissie it's beautiful. Well I've made two batches of the truffles and they've nearly all gone. Will be making one more batch today - can't believe how easy and delicious they are and why I've never made them before now!! I'm hoping to write a post about my Valentines makes and bakes so can I give them a mention and link up to you?
    Thanks so much for your super comments about my crochet votives ♥
    Have a great weekend XX

    PS I've been stitching so can't show any crochet - it's been awhile in fact, but the hook is winking at me so maybe next week. xo

  46. Love your shawl as much as mine! seriously, I so enjoyed crocheting the Nordic shawl. I wish I had used a chartreuse colour rather than yellow in the middle though. Love your soft colours too.

  47. It's very pretty indeed, I really like your colours and the border. It looks quite cute being oversized on your daughter, hope you managed to steal it back from her ;-)
