Hello, hello everyone! I wanted to alter my blogging schedule a little and skip the inspiration Monday today but I am here with an equally inspiring project (at least it was to me) and as you can see from the title - I call it the Istanbul Shawl, which I made during the 9-10 hour car ride to Istanbul.
The stitch is repetitive and very easy to follow, yet it has a beautiful effect, although I found it a bit boring at times, but I believe the long driving is to blame for that. Much of its attractiveness falls to the hanging flowers/vines which add up onto the overall effect.
It looks just lovely wrapped around the shoulders but even better when it is wrapped around the neck, but we simply rushed with the photo shoot and didn't take any "wrapped around the neck" photos. Let me explain. This was one of those photo shoots where we take pictures of several projects at a time and the first one (involving a fairy tale scene with lots of tulle) attracted quite a crowd so Eva didn't feel comfortable any more so (sadly) we snapped just a few of this shawl. We couldn't even find the brooch pin so had to improvise with a twig, which came out quite charmingly, if you don't mind me saying!
Stay tuned for more crochet goodies' reveal.
