Yes. Yes, thanks for asking, I shawly have finished my shawl of happy crazy goodness. And it shawly has been a journey.
This shawl started as some squares that were going to become bunting, but then I was not feeling the love for that idea, so they kept growing and growing until they morphed into this bad boy!
I was originally going to put flowers on, but it ended up too busy looking, and I think you will agree that there is more than enough to look at already in this crazy colourful shawl.
It was inspired by this gorgeous blanket.
I am not sure if I will ever wear this out of the house, or if it will just be a "houseshawl". I have never really worn a shawl before.
So, you might be interested in the following:
Things that Happened during this photo-shoot:
-My dog Lucy tried to poke her head into every shot. I mean every shot!! And not in the cute, posing way, in the blurry out of focus in and out way.
-I was worried the whole time that an unsuspecting stranger would come up to me and say "What on earth are you doing?" My response would of course have been "Dancing like no one is watching!" Or in reality, the more likely response of jumping in alarm, muttering something unintelligible,and slinking away, shawl under arm. Lucky it didn't happen!
-Also, the last two shots are not some fancy blurry app, it started raining, and was also quite humid, and the camera (my phone) fogged up.
-It started raining during the "shoot"
-My sneakers got very very wet.
-The shawl got very wet- positive reframe, I needed to block it anyway!
-It was really really fun!
Anyway, this was something I really enjoyed making. It's comprised of a mix of mostly mohair and a few other scraps I had lying around.
It has also meant that my new project is sorted, as now the shortest one in the house has decided that she wants a shawl like Mummy's. So I've started on an extremely colourful one, where she has chosen the colours and design herself. It's going to be striped and flowers!!
Also, just a reminder that you can enter my Pay It Forward competition here. You have till next Wednesday to enter.

So apologies for not commenting on any of your lovely posts, and I will now be catching up on them all over the next few days.
Take care xx
