The Sunday Shawl Addiction


So a few weeks ago, my friend, Laura stirred up this first little burst of a frenzy with photos of The Sunday Shawl by Little Bee... Then, she started hers and it was so bright and cheerful... and summer-like!  I tried to stay focused on projects I already had in the works...


But, dreams of long, hot summer days... and wearing flowing, gauzy cotton... Well, it just became an obsession; and, I remembered that I had a summer outfit that I did not have a shawl to match... Justification was born.


Soon, I was in the midst of this wonderful pattern.  It is so fun!  And, fast!  Mine is done in Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep Company, Inc.


These photos were taken on one of our gray days... they do not do it justice. Can't say enough about how fun this was; I enjoyed it so much that I finished my second one Saturday night! Thank you, Laura!


EARLY this morning!  SUNSHINE on its way!  I'm smiling!!  Lots to do!  Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!

Nice work! And you've made 2 already? How'd you like that Cotton Fleece? I just bought a child's vest pattern that calls for it.

I love that outfit, and the shawl matches perfectly! Glad you found something fun to work on with the gloomy weather around here. We're getting more rain and clouds the next four days supposedly. Enjoy today with all the sunshine!

This post is about COLORS!

The sunrise is breathing taking.

Love the colors you put together for this shawl. It is similar to the ones we made in college--though yours has more detail and is way nicer. Amazing you did a second one already. You are so inspiring! Hope you are enjoying some pretty spring weather as we are here. Near perfect.

Love those colors!

Tricia Buice said...

I had sun on my face today Tanna. It was healing and such a relief. We have had a weary winter. We had a gorgeous sunrise this morning - the colors were amazing just like the colors in this beautiful creation. They will be perfect for those cool spring evenings. Lovely!

Wanda said...

What a beautiful combination of colors. What a cute outfit that is.

That sunrise is breathtaking.


Sending hugs
