FO :: Elisabeth Lovick’s Crescent Shawl and a really magnificent gift

Hello, my dear friends!

These last two weeks were quite busy and intensely lived, in particular in its affective and emotional aspect. My Big man is working an awfully lot and the days he was at home I was focused on him and our life together and didn’t have the right concentration to blog. Well, to be honest, we are facing some issues that require a lot of energy and self confidence so I prefered being present in the real life rather than in the virual one. On the other hand, I didn’t stop to craft mostly because this is the best way to muse about everyday life and its problems as well as because my hands were itching to craft something from Elisabeth Lovick’s book.

But before writing about my last FO I’d like to show you what bmaryglaser sent me from the States…

The American Cook Book…

AMAZING!!!!

I have secretly desired it for ages…. and it is exactly as I imagined it….

…..just woooooooooooooooooooooow…..

That kind lady called Brittany Mary put in the parcel another amazing item…..

….which, as I saw it, made me recall Janis Joplin’s song Me and Bobby McGee….

Bmary glued all the pieces of this beautiful car all by herself…. how, for God’s sake, can’t I be moved to tears… ?

And last but not least, she crocheted a beautiful headband and wrote me a gorgeous card…

Bmary, I forgot to tell you that I’m on my way to make my hair grow under my Big man’s strict demand…. I think that this summer I will be the coolest girl in town…. 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

What can I say…. when I saw the contents of the parcel I was astonished!!! It is far beyond my expectations and I really don’t know how to thank you properly, Bmary!!! I enjoy every single goodie you sent me. Thank you ❤ ❤ ❤

Now, the Crescent shawl…. the photos just do not do it justice. I’ll try to make a better photo session of the shawl next week (I’m traveling to Croatia on Thursday) but up till then….

I have finished off the shawl an hour ago and have blocked it on the bed. I do not usually soak my knitted projects monstly because I do not have an appropriate surface to put them to dry …. I usually wet them with an odor eliminator, block them and make dry on the bed. Well, it works almost as well as soaking…. 🙂

I’m in love with Shetland lace…. I was so affrait not to be able to knit the shawl but it had turned out better that I could have eventually expected…. It was such a pleasure knitting this goodie as well as seeing it shaping while blocking…. and the colour…. it is not an usual red… oh no.. it is a nice cherry red that I love really much….

  1. Oh Tajana! It is gorgeous! I am so thrilled to see it. You are absolutely amazing. I can hardly believe that I am the lucky recipient. And another present in the works? My dear, you are too good to me. I will have to start another surprise for you then. 🙂 <3<3<3

    1. I promised you a tote bag and a tote bag will be. I’m going to Croatia for a week and when I’ll be back I’ll sew it… I was worried because I didn’y know if the shawl will turned out well but indeed it is beyond any expectation. I’m happy about it 🙂
