But my first encounter with the Seraphina's Shawl was in the summer. I wanted to crochet this one as a gift for my mother-in-law.
I thought I'd finish it off in Algeria, but I ran out of yarn! So I went out looking for some. I found nothing! Embroidery cotton, yes. But no wool or acrylic yarn. Those would be available at the market in autumn, we were told. So I came home and started again!
Here it is again...
In it's entirety.
It was a little chunky but after blocking, it opened up a bit. I hope she likes it!
Edited to add: I've only just realised that I haven't linked to this lovely pattern! Here it is!
