Custom Shawl in Progress

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I received an order for a shawl which I had posted as the cover photo on my Facebook page. The shawl was a gift I had made for my cousin which I wasn't actually planning on making more of, but was happy to do it when this customer contacted me. After discussing with her and workout out the logistics, I excitedly ran to Hobby Lobby to pick up the yarn. A lovely variety of black, white, lavender, and hot pink.

I grabbed my pattern and got started. After the first hour, here is how far I got. You can see the bottom tips of the butterfly starting.

 After 2 hours, much more of the lovely butterfly is showing, and more colors are introduced.
After 4 hours, the lower part of the butterfly wings are really starting to take shape.

I'm figuring it will take about 15 hours to complete, and I'm already thinking about what colors I want to do next, and have designed a couple different shawls to try out. I forgot how much fun this type of crochet is!

We live in times when comfort and style really matter. That's why we chose to go with the prizes that are very handy for anybody in this busy life. These products will definitely contribute to your work, to your hobby, to your creative projects.
All this is possible with the help of The Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Research. What is it? It is closer to home than you may think. This non-profit Foundation puts forward all its resources into education and active involvement of people like you and I in the conservation of the Rainforest. It does it with workshops, trips to the Peruvian Amazon, connecting educational institutions with each other, and supporting indiginous people.
Do we really care if the Rainforest vanishes from the face of the Earth? You bet. And you'd better be proactive NOW. If all of the Rainforest goes away, we will be experiencing one of those cataclizms like in a horrific movie.
We want to continue to live, and to blog. And blog happily.
Let's celebrate our connections with each other and with Nature.
Let's Walk & Work With Style, while always caring about the interconnectidness of this Universe.
We would love to Thank All These Great Blogs who came through strongly with their support for this occassion. Our applause to each and every one of you:
