Swap Shawl(s)

It feels like I've been waiting to post these photos forever. I took part in an Australian Knitters swap on ravelry and my partner has received. Yay!

This is my main project for the Australian Knitters group swap on Ravelry. I made my partner a shawl in some lace weight merino I had (held double), and it is nice and soft, and hopefully warm enough to take the chill off in Darwin without being too hot and thick. I also made a teeny one for a Wednesday Adams doll she received in the last swap from someone else.

The pattern is Eva's Shawl which worked up quite quickly and gave a nice lacy shawl that provides a bit of warmth.

Those shawls are lovely!!! The colours, the breeziness... I'm sure your swap partner will be stoked with that!!!

It is crocheted isn't it? Can you send crocheted items in a knitting swap? This would be great as I don't knit :-)

Yeah, it's definitely crocheted. If I had to send something knitted it would be very small or very late.
The Australian Knitter's group does accept crocheters but it would be good if the name was more inclusive.
