Promenade is complete
I finally managed to complete Promenade - took me a while due to trips away and other commitments but I did get there eventually. The shawl loosened and softened beautifully when washed in warm, soapy water and then rinsed with fabric conditioner. It had its first outing this morning to a pretty chilly church where I was leading worship - kept me very warm and kept my hands free for playing guitar. Always handy...
Sorry these photos aren't of Promenade being modelled on a real person. My husband is rarely around when it's good light and I wanted to capture the colours in sunshine to show them at their magnificent best.
Not sure what's next. I have a few more HF kits stored in my cupboard - Tivoli, Ping Pong, Diva and I'm sure I'll do another Mermaid - but I may have a break and do something which grows a little more quickly (and with somewhat shorter rows than Promenade!)
