Noro Virus Shawl

I have the Virus Shawl addiction! So I decided to make a second one and this time I went for Noro Aya, with its beautiful mix of colours and fibres.

 

Yarndale 2015

..and was it worth the 4 hour train ride each way from London, all in one day? Well I had a good time :)

Blessed with lovely weather that day, the walk from the station was colourful, bright and absolutely beautiful!

 

Revamped sewing box

I had bought this old (broken) sewing box in 2012 from the local charity shop on a mission to repair and revamp, but unfortunately it has just sat in the corner of the room until recently…

… I decided I really needed to get this project completed so that I can actually use the sewing box! So with some William Morris print cotton fabric, felt, glue, a box of replacement screws and my trusty little sewing machine I got to work…

… and finally 3 years after I had planned to start, it was finally all done.

 

 

Virus Shawl

I have seen photos of the Virus shawl so many times on crochet groups, that I had to give this a try. I used 4x50g balls of Jaeger Aqua cotton and black. The shawl has a nice weight and washes well.

 

I used the online video tutorials by woolpedia (I found this video really easy to follow)  https://youtu.be/oEBFSl0D3NQ
