I think it looks great, and it has a certain style!!! I do like those colours as well, so when do we see it modeled?!

rebecca

Lovely colours and textures. I think old fashioned bed jackets would make perfect blog reading attire dont you think!

erin

ah - i like it. it has personality!

Biscuitbear

Well I love it. I'd love to be able to achieve this bunched effect! It looks wonderful.

dee

gorgeaous! love it! I am in the process of learning crochet right now, knitting will be next...

Love the shawl!! It will uncrinkle once you're wearing it some too and the crinkle actually gives a nice effect. You meant to do that right? RIGHT!!

I'm loving the ripple blankies too, needing to attempt crochet again. It is not my friend, but maybe it will let me be an aquaintance. ;-)

I was an obsessed crochet queen last year.. I sat for hours and hours with my grandma crocheting our hearts out...And guess what that got me? Not only did I learn how to invent my own awesome patterns.. but, My Granny lovely, gave me the most divine and exquisite creations that her, her mother and her mother's mother crocheted together sitting around a table.. bed coverings, tablecloths..Can you imagine!!!You will be able to make those two lovely blankets that zig-zag, I just know you will!!!

Lovely shawl! I really like how the knitting and crochet look together.

We must be on the same wave length because, a couple of nights ago, I pulled out my knitting stuff again! (I need something better to do with my hands then eat!) I forgot how much I loved it until I went to get some more yarn from the store and felt a surge of adrenaline! I love it!

I too am starting to sway towards crocheting. I am going to embark on a this beautiful throw. (Sorry about the long link but I wanted to show it to you!)

I might have to try one of those blankets too . . . ummmm, in my spare time!! LOL!

I love the shawl!!! :)

I really love the shawl you are making,I'd really like to have a go at making one for myself. Could you post the pattern or instructions for for it please? and what yarn/wool did you use?
thanks

I think it looks like you'd want to put it on and never take it off, like a little warm friend around your shoulders. Yum. And thanks for the link!

Carson

Haha!
I haven't heard "bloody nora"! in sooo long!
and i love the colours in the granny shawl; & the white border around the stripe-work? really nice touch.
haven't visited your blog for a wee while..you have been busy haven't you?

(ummm...not to offend the others that you liked better) but I like yours more. The zigzag didn't do it for me.

The colors you used appeal to me and I also like the bunched effect.

Great job.

Jane

Oh, I love it. I love the mix of textures and colours. Most of all I like the fetching needle fastening. You could start a new fashion with this.

Vallen Queen

This is terrific. Ever since I saw "Amelie" I have wanted to have many little shoulder and neck cozies like the woman she works with (the one who's a hypochondriac). The whole idea of it is so je ne sais quois

Zoe

very, very lovely and cosy :)

kate

..please tell me how you made it- I am a granny (nona) and I love it and would wear one like that! :) But I don't crochet...

Mª Engracia

Hola!! I love you work and I love your blog. Congratulations!!!!

Cara Schramm

I love it bunchie. It looks kind of huggie - you know - it just wants to snuggle around you. You've got me thinking - I NEEEEED one of these, but quite sadly, don't knit OR crochet (on my list of things to learn this year). So in the meantime, how can I come up with my own shawlie/cape? Hmmm...got some ideas....Thanks for the inspiration!

It looks so soft and cozy! And I envy all you crocheters. I can't seem to get it.

Looks cool! To avoid puckering when combining techniques just go up a hook size. I usually try to match the needle and hook sizes. That does the trick most of the time. Bravo!

Alina

Pretty!!

Pretty!!

bekka

such unusual colors. i love 'em! can't wait to see what the granny shawl looks like on.

Judy-Craftaroo

I have been very good and asked my library to buy the Jan Eaton, Ripple Stitch book. Thank you for getting my crafting mojo going again.

lynn

I need to make one of those!What a good idea! I love in an old drafty house with a fritzy heating system. Seems like I'm always either too hot or chilly.

Emily S.

Oh, that is lovely!
