Finally, it's done! I've been working on this for two weeks now, and I absolutely love how it pretty it came out.
This shawl is a gift for my sister. It's so warm and the colors are so pretty I am having second thoughts on giving it away.. hehe...
The yarn I used for this project is the Ice Yarn Angora Gold Batik Maroon Pink. It is made in Turkey and is a 45% Angora 55% Acrylic combination. Very soft and perfect for shawls and other wearables. I bought them from Gantsilyo Guru Selections, a newly-opened online store of the Gantsilyo Guru, Trey Ajusto. The store opened on the 11th of August and I just had to buy some of those luscious yarn she has.
I opted to use a simple V-stitch so that the self-striping colors of the yarn will be emphasized. It is the same stitch I used for the blue placemat in the above photo. For the edging, I wanted to put tassels but fearing that the future owner will not be extra careful with it, I made shell and picot edgings.
So here are the stats:
Hook: 7/0 or 4.0mm
Yarn: Ice Yarn Angora Gold Batik in Maroon Pink (3skeins); 1 skein=550m
Measurements: 69" x 21" with edging
All I need to do now is wash it, put on a nice wrapping, and off it will go to its new home... :) Happy!
