Hot off the hook

Standard

The Cosmos Fields Shawl.. 

Yes, it’s huge! Wingspan is about 102″ and depth from neck to point is 47″. I should probably have stuck to the pattern’s recommendation to use five colours, as I followed the plan to do one row of each, two rows of each, etc,  and ended up with a larger shawl. I also had to fudge the first and last border rows ever so slightly. 

  
I’m wearing my favourite skirt today, the one my mother in law bought for me a few years ago in the island of Jersey.

Even though I made three pairs of slippers while this was on the go, it took less than two weeks from start to finish.  Specs: Stylecraft Special Aran in teal, magenta, lavender, plum, aster and aspen. Total yarn used 8.1 skeins (810 grams) or 1585 metres. 5.5mm hook.
