You may be aware of my disappointment (from my previous post ) at not replicating the scarf pattern exactly (as lovely as it turned out). No sooner had I finished it, I rushed to my local wool shop and bought myself some beautiful multi-shaded wool which reminded me of peacocks. Perfect for a lacy shell number.
You can see what I mean about reminding me of peacocks; that, plus the fact this wool was soooo incredibly soft to touch. I bought it from my local wool shop and interestingly the wool was produced locally too, in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Having looked into it a little, I discovered that Yorkshire has a rich heritage in wool, which I think is pretty cool as an inhabitant (though I’m not from Yorkshire originally). In fact I think I may even write a blog post on the matter – that’s how cool I think it is.
Anyway, I digress. I’m very happy to announce that my scarf turned out exactly how it should: lacy and gorgeous!
Take a look:
Et voila! Mission completed.
If you are a newbie crocheter like me then I really do recommend this pattern. It’s a very simple rhythmic pattern, which allows you to practice getting to grips with holding the hook and yarn, and counting shells and stitches.

Until next time…!
