Sock Shawl

I just finished crocheting my sock shawl. I received two different (but similar) skeins of sock yarn for my b-day. One from Mary Jo and the other from Audrey. I liked both colorways so much that I decided to alternate, every two rows for each skein and crochet a simple shawl. I used a size "G" crochet hook. After using up all 800 yards of sock yarn, I purchased another skein of Trekking XXL on sale at Yarns Unlimited and crocheted a border.
This would also make a great table runner!
After much blocking, it's now very drapey, lightweight, colorful and comfy! I love it! Thanks for the inspiration, Audrey and Mary Jo!

Thanks to my co-worker, Jessica, for modeling the shawl!

Have a great weekend!

I love the colors in this shawl, Ellen. What a smart idea to crochet with sock yarn!

That shawl is gorgeous. I love the way the yarns play off each other. It's a stunner! Good job.

Another gorgeous crochet item from the hook of Ellen!! It turned out great and I can't wait to see it in person.

I think that the simple granny stitch you've chosen really shows off the beauty of the colour variegations in the yarn. I love the border too. =]
