Saskia’s Omslagsjaal a.k.a. wrap

Just yesterday I was browsing thru some blogs that I followed and when I saw this wrap I know that I have to make it, I looked into my yarn stash and found 5 balls that I want to use for this wrap.

This is made with Tennesse Novita yarn, which is a cotton yarn.  The first few rows I use a 3,5mm but then decided to go up to 4mm hook and happy with the result as it drapes more and feels softer.
I also got a little help from Spud of Bob the Builder when taking some pictures.

more to come next week ... so don't forget to come by ..

Denim Tranquality Shawl

Finally I have something to write this year ....

I have a couple of balls Alpaca yarn from Drops Design, I wasn't sure what I want to make with it when I bought them. And suddenly after browsing through other blogs and I saw this shawl in De Haakzolder blog I suddenly felt this is the one I want to use this yarn for.  So I went to Drops website to look for the pattern and you can find it here.

I use the blue color hues and think to add red for the lace border. I called mine Denim Tranquality because I see the colors like denim colors,

Pattern : Tranquality by Drops Design
Yarn used: Alpaca 6205 (light blue), 6309 (darker blue),
6790 (dark blue)

Thanks for coming by ..... until next blog ...
