My hubby and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary this summer. As part of that celebration we'll be making a trip to Seattle. Believe it or not, even though I live less than 3 hours away, I've never been. We'll also be attending a fan retreat for one of my favorite authors, Diana Gabaldon, who wrote the Outlander series. Yes, my husband is a very good sport, going to a fan retreat with 500 attendees, a GREAT majority of those being women! He's also attending pre and post retreat dinners. He pretty much rocks and I think I'll keep him around for at least another 20 years! :)
Anyway, I supplemented my wardrobe for the upcoming trip and one of the chosen tops is sleeveless. I really like something on my shoulders, so I scoured the internet to find a pattern that would be light, pretty and match my top. Enter the Irish Crochet Scarf . I made mine using Vanna's Glamour in Platinum color.
It was tricky at first, but once I made a few motifs the process went much faster. By the end I had the pattern memorized!
I'm now working on another one in Vanna's Glamour in Ruby Red color. It will be used in a raffle to raise money for the charity that Diana supports, NPH USA.
I have immensely enjoyed the process of making these shawls and will definitely be adding some to the shop. What color would you like to see this shawl done in?
