Two Beautiful Things



This is the Simple Yet Effective Shawl. I'm doing it in Noro Iro, color #70. I can't even express how much I really love this! The shawl is a simple triangle shawl that alternates garter and stockinette. It really shows off the Noro yarn wonderfully.



Here's another picture, but the shawl is a good bit larger now. That is a cat in the corner of the picture. I laid it out on the bed just before bed. The afghan underneath is the giant granny square I crocheted for my husband a couple years ago. That's one project that has gotten tons of use!



That is my African Violet which just started blooming. I noticed it the other day when I was watering it. Isn't that pretty?





And of course, the obligatory flower close-ups!

That shawl and the Noro were made for each other!

The colors are great. The pattern looks nice. I will add that to my list of patterns to do. And the African Violet! I used to be able to grow the leaves, never the flower. :)
