One Shawl Nearly Done

Back in August, I posted about two shawls in progress,

Well one is nearly done!

This one is the Cromulent Shawl worked in an Emma Lola (my Lola- I chose the colour way - you can read about it here, in  this blog post!)

I have 2 colour changes left to go - to fade into a darker red.

The good news is that the Emma Lola is restocked at Yarnish - follow this link - but they do go fast! 

The second shawl hasn't has much progress since I wrote about in August, but once I've finished this one, I'm going to dedicate time just for it. 

Thanks for reading, and happy crocheting!

My Lola Story

In the last post I shared a project that I'm currently working on, and the yarn I'm using is a Lola from Garnmanufaktur.

What makes it special, is that I chose the colours - and the 'Emma' Lola is available to order at Yarnish! (At the time of this post, they are currently sold out, but will be re stocked)

Today I'd like to share the inspiration of my colours.

My palette is based on Eucalyptus leaves.

The deep wine red might be a surprising choice, but if you look closely you'll see the colour of the new shoots and leaves.

I like to think I have two colour themes - bright yellows and pinks, or these Aussie bush colours (There might be another blog post dedicated to my 'bright' palette)

Last Christmas I made a table runner - as part of the Yarnish Advent MCAL - and had the same colour inspo.

The wildflower necklace kit is also based on the same theme! With other native flower variations available.  

I'm very excited to have my own yarn colourway, and equally excited to share it with you! If you do grab an 'Emma Lola' please share a picture with what you make! You can Tag #ewdmakes, #yarnishandco or #yarnishmakes and I'll see it on Instagram, or send via a direct message!

As my shawl progresses, I'll be sharing more pictures here.

Thanks for Reading, and Happy Crocheting,

Two Shawls in Progress

As I use Instagram daily, I don't share much of my crochet progress here - but I thought I'd make a bit of a change.

At the moment I'm making two shawls, both are my own patterns, and both are in very different yarn to the original patterns, and both are asymmetrical designs.

The first I'm making is the Cromulent Shawl. The original pattern called for Stonewashed by Scheepjes. I love wearing this shawl, it's comfortable and the grey works with most things I wear. The yarn is a unique cotton and acrylic blend, that looks just like stonewashed jeans!

I'm making a new version from a Lola by Garnmanufaktur. A stranded cotton that is handmade and beautiful - and I picked the colours! As part of my design work for Yarnish, I was asked to pick a colour for the exclusive colour range 'Yarnish and Co' Lolas.

My new cromulent shawl will flow from the green through to the scarlet.

The second shawl I started is the Bracken Scarf. Originally made in Abbey Road cotton, a thick chunky cotton, I'm now using a Frosted Whirl from Scheepjes. I started making something else from the whirl and didn't quite like it. I have cut the first colour from the centre out and started at the end of the solid blue. I'm reserving the cut section for the stripes, and this means once I've finished the cake, and if I feel I need a second, I'll be at the outside for one colour sequence and the inside of the other, and can seamlessly join the next cake! (way to make it super complicated!)

I'll be posting my progress on these two projects here on the blog as I become a little more active here!
