Wrapped in Warmth

I don’t often buy patterns, but when I saw this, I knew that it was one that I would use over and over. And I have! I am now making my 3rd shawl with this pattern and altering it a bit so that it will use less yarn. I will post pictures of that one soon (I hope). This was the first “Wrapped in Warmth” shawl by ELK Studio (found on ravelry) that I made. I used Isaac Mizrahi yarn and a 5mm hook.
These are pictures done by my  photographer friend. Just goes to show how important a good picture is to marketing your items! Thank you Christina from http://www.beeskneesphotographync.com for the wonderful photos! Please go check out her beautiful nature photography as well.

Solution to the “Now What?!” Post

So I will admit that I tried cream and I tried white (as was suggested in one of my crochet groups), but neither looked quite right.
I headed to the store and after about 30 minutes in the yarn aisles, these were the colors that I settled on. When I bought them, I wasn’t sure if I would use one color or both, but in the end this is what I settled on.
It’s growing on me and I think that it will be a hit!
