As promised, an update on the progress with my aran crochet. It certainly is not a forgiving art, there have had to be a couple of re-do's on this one following lapses in concentration.
As a first attempt I am quite happy with it. All I need to do now is add a the finishing touches, a feature to the bottom & a button. I have a lovely huge coconut flower button I plan to use.
The biggest challenge with this has been getting the twists to work well, I changed how I was doing them as I went along & really was only happy by the last one - isn't that always the way?
The shawl is still curling a bit too so I think that I'll have to wash & block it, which is going to be a challenge given the length.
So what do you think for a first go? Was it a success or not?
