Shawls....shawls....and more shawls.....

For the last few weeks I've been in a crocheting frame of mind.  I love working with natural fibers....wools, silks, cotton.....the list is endless.  Here are 5 of my shawls I've finished so far.  Peyton was nice enough to be my model.

The above one was made using fingering weight wool.  

This one was made using silk.

The above is my favorite and will remain with me.  It's made using a yarn with Silk, Alpaca, Cashmere and Camel wool.  It's as soft as a babys bottom.

The above is a silk and wool combo.

This one is a fingering weight wool.  

They are basically all over the same pattern with some differences in the edging.  If you are looking for a great pattern that works up super fast, the pattern is on Ravelry and it's called Recuerdos de infancia.
I've started a new one called Cheche a la sauce bidules chouetttes and that one is being made out of a Cascade yarn called Pacific and it's wool and acrylic in a light grey color.

Well that's all for today.  I'm working on a small Sweetheart Tree freebie and hope to start the french SAL any day now.  Until we talk again, have a Blessed day,
Barbara

Your shawls are very nice. Were they hard? I crochet some but mostly cross stitch. Love the choice of fibers and that mauve one is my favorite along with the cream and blue. Beautiful work.

They're all beautiful! I love shawls that are large enough to wrap around a person. I'm trying to learn to crochet but my fingers just aren't cooperating. :-( That makes me admire your work all the more!
