Destashing With Shawls

I've been planning to destash some of the yarn I own for quite some time now. Instead of selling them, I just decided to make shawls out of these unused balls of yarn. And with this weather, I think it's the perfect time to offer shawls.

One challenge for me though is crocheting these shawls. It takes me days to finish one, so I needed to look for a crocheter who I can train and eventually take under my wing to crochet projects for me that meet my personal standards. I met Cristina (more of her in a future post) through our former family driver. She is a stay-at-home mom with no current source of income. She knows how to crochet some basic stitches and that was enough for me. After a few days of training, Cristina was able to crochet these shawls and give them a finish similar to my own :)
"Romantic Lacy Shawl" Pattern by Kathleen Sams for Red Heart
Available colors are (clockwise from top left): old rose, scarlet, pink, and purple. I only have a piece each of these so far. Depending on how much yarn I have left in my stash, I can accept additional orders for colors you may prefer.

Here's the full-length view. Length of the shawl is approximately 60 inches and width is approximately 21 inches.
If you want to make someone happy and warm (not excluding yourself, of course), email me at gantsilyoguru@gmail.com or send me a private message on my page Crochet by the Gantsilyo Guru if you are interested to buy one of these pieces.

  3. Shawls and red dresses Ladies love to wear red dresses for a variety of reasons. They immediately attract attention so that wherever you are you easily become the center of attention. http://alizehmysoul.com/hidden-pearl-hijab-review/
