A Crocheted Lace Shawl

Surely my enlarged ‘Morpho’ now qualifies as a full-grown Shawl! Seen here drying after a gentle soak, it measures six feet (1.8m) along its top edge and 32 inches (81cm) at the center-point.

DH and I had chilly fun doing a ‘fashion shoot’ out in the snowy woods. We received just one encouraging toot from a passing car, but I bet lots of other drivers were wondering what we were up to! lol.

These are the photos and description that I sent for the silent charity auction’s display:

” This lightweight cotton lace shawl will be perfect over a sleeveless dress this summer

423 summer lace

but a fine hand-crocheted wrap is just as lovely when worn as an added layer during cool weather.

and finished with a scalloped edge.
