Welcome to Wool on Sundays 44! After my small beginning at creating a colourful improv cowl, last week, I crocheted like mad at the beginning of this week, with joy in my heart and hoping this photo would be my big Ta-da! moment..
So I’ve decided I will make another wool shawl instead and turn this into something else. I added a centre circle and here it is covering the lid of the laundry basket.
This is my favourite view of it but it really hangs down too far at the sides, which I would find a nuisance.
So perhaps a very large round cushion. Or perhaps a bag…
Whilst I was pondering, I thought I’d make a very conservative grey scarf, which surely no one could find objectionable. But I got too bored with it and unravelled it.
So, all in all, not a great week here at Rainbow Hare, despite getting quite a lot done.
Onwards and upwards, I suppose.
How has your week been?
Have you got any yarn projects to share – popular or otherwise? If so, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are:

Families!! Who needs them anyway!! Sometimes they are the harshest critics, aren't they. If you are feeling a li'l iffy about it, then I suppose that's your cue. If it's heavy and thick and wouldn't fall well, then perhaps not, though from the li'l snippet I'm liking it. BUT….when one looks at your glorious crochet, from a bird's eye view, then me thinks it will make a beautiful cushion. It looks joyful in the round…..I am in love with your crochet! You have the best ability of throwing gorgeous hues together! Hope your week is filled with some happy woollying!
Oh what a shame! I think it's lovely and looks so beautiful covering your laundry basket that it has to find a permanent home on show.
I thought it looked ok as clothing, but it looks great on top of the laundry basket. If it's a nuisance, can you tuck the sides in under the lid and sew it into place? Otherwise, it would make an awesome cushion cover.
Lovely colours and style pattern I too think it would look good as a cushion :)
I love how it looks. But if it's heavy & thick it might be better used as you are currently… but I would try it again in a lighter weight yarn. I love having unique items to wear!
Hey it would make a great poufe with another half to match it!
I think there were too many colours to make it look right for wearing though I do really like the pattern idea for a shrug like that.
However, rounded up centrally it comes into its own, as a cushion or cover or poufe and the colours all compliment eachother better that way !
I like it well enough as a piece of clothing, but I like it even better as a laundry basket lid cover. I like the bird's-eye view a lot. May be you can tuck it in and secure it somehow?
I love it! Public opinion humbug! :)
I like your shawl design! Maybe the “circles” was a little too much, but a less bold color choice would take care of that! Keep going, please!
You do make me laugh, I don't like it as a shawl but I think a cushion from the circular circles would look lovely, although I do like the laundry basket top.
The grey scarf pattern looks lovely, what stitch is that and is it out of your head or a pattern, it's really pretty.
