Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and birthday wishes*, much appreciated!
Meanwhile I came up with another idea for as shawl and got started straight away!
I had some Drops Delight sock yarn in different shades of blue which seemed like a good choice!
To be on the safe side, I did order some extra, just in case!
Since this is fingering weight yarn, a 3.5mm hook is recommended, but I went with a 4mm as I wanted it to be more lacy! Also, I crochet a bit loosely, so another person might get the same result with a 4.5mm if they crochet tightly!
My design started out with the longest side of the shawl. This meant I had to decide how large I wanted to make it. I decided to go with a shawlette size, something that is large enough to wrap around the neck and wear at the front, or alternatively, wear it open and just over the shoulders.
I started on Wednesday and finished it this afternoon. By that I mean that the main body of the shawl is complete, but it still needs to be blocked and then I will design a border that goes with it.
So, this is the shawl - as it currently is!!!

I enjoyed creating this design and part of the fun is that the rows get shorter each time! :)
I had a lovely day, spent it mostly with my youngest daughter who baked an(other) fantastic cake! Later we went into Antwerp and I bought some things with my birthday money! In the evening we went for a Mexican meal!
So, that's all for now, until next time!
Have a great week!!
