SnB: Sweet Pea Shawl

I got tired of working on my Violet Beauregard so I started on the Sweet Pea Shawl which was also from Stitch ‘N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker. I frogged it after completing only the first row of shells because I hated how the shells looked. They were really loose and loopy. I don’t think I’m cut out for crocheting shells. I just can’t seem to get them to look right. It’s really frustrating. Moreover, after starting on the shawl, I realised I’m not crazy about making shawls with worsted weight yarn. If I do decide to give the Sweet Pea Shawl another try, I think I’ll probably do it with Knit Picks‘s Shine Sport.

Now what am I going to do with 8 balls of Knit Picks‘s Shine Worsted in watermelon?

  1. I just finished the Sweet Pea with the Classic Elite Flash. It’s nice yarn but a bit $$$. The yarn is pretty thin though, I think it’s closer to the Knitpicks sport than the worsted.

    Also try a swatch. The first few rows don’t look as nice as when you have a bunch together.

  2. Lesa jump up and down I want it I want it lol. Hey Lis just wanted to stop by my Crochet Chicks blogs to see how you all doing. If you decided to give the shawl anotehr try like you said try with a different yarn. Good luck. :) don’t give up to soon. Beat that yarn to death lol. J/K

  4. Thanks ladies, I’ll take a look around Ravelry. I’ll probably redo this in Shine Sport when I feel brave enough to tackle it again.
