I first fell in love with this pattern when I started to learn to crochet. It was my goal and ambition to learn enough to be able to complete it.
Big Sister managed to source me some Australian wool at far more affordable prices than NZ wool. This project takes a bit. So I started hooking it in January.
It’s taken six months, and I’d set the target of having it ready to assemble in time for the annual Hanmer Craft Weekend.
Now they say that what happens in Hanmer stays in Hanmer, so I won’t offer any further detail, but let you imagine what 15 crafting women in one house for a weekend could be like…
There’s something about having snow on the ground outside, and a view straight up to a mountain, to motivate me to finish a shawl. I just wanted to be able to wear it and get out there to play modelling with the camera.
And yes, I’d made a hat and mitts to match.
