FP - The Pineapple shawl

Oh how I love thee...............
Yarn: Sirdar Luxury Soft (125g)
Hook size: 3.00
Time to complete: 12 hours

...my most worn and most loved crocheted item to date and I am bit late in sharing it here, I have to admit.
As soon as I finished this shawl I didn't even bother blocking it because I wanted to wear it straight away.

It sounds strange but as soon as I started this shawl I feel in love with its lightness and texture straight away, which is probably why I got this done within a matter of days and I am seriously thinking of doing another one in a different colour.

I do think that the yarn itself helps a lot as well as it is the most wonderful to work with and to wear: Sirdar Luxury Soft. It you get a chance to work with this yarn, DO it - as Sirdar have discontinued it snap it up whenever you get the chance. It also has a great running length, which makes it perfect for projects like wraps, scarves or shawls as you only need two balls for an good sized shawl.

But I digress, when I just now had a few days off work, I decided I should really block this shawl to make the pattern stand out more, and BOY am I glad I did, because I love it even more now.

It will probably get an outing today, as Mr P and myself are off for the day to make the most of the sunshine.

  7. I love those projects, the kind that sort of just fly off the needles (or in your case, hook). Although I personally think that cotton is one of the most enjoyable fibers to work with. Looks amazing, thanks for sharing!
