Renfield's Shawl

Here is my tribute to Dracula's sidekick...



Yes, it's Renfield's Shawl!

Covered in crocheted buggy delights, this woolly wonder is made up of woven diamonds that I subsequently crocheted together. Each diamond was woven on my 12" Hazel Rose Diamond Loom in a variety of yarns such as Colinette Point 5, Lamb's Pride Bulky as well as a little Vitreous Humor by Insubordiknit (which I love!).



Renfield's meal replacements...uh...buggy buddies were crocheted from scraps of Koigu KPPPM.



More details about the bug appliques can be found here.

All in all, not a bad accessory to drape about the shoulders while traipsing around the neighborhood in pursuit of candy on All Hallows Eve!

Happy Halloweeeeeeen!!

I glanced and saw the beautiful colour choices, I looked harder and started to laugh, I love your designs and your fiendish imagination.

I must have missed the maggots when I cruised thru the other day, so today as i scrolled down, I admit I made a face combined with a rude noise when I came to the orbs on the shawl. Correct response?

The boy next door, 6, is wearing an ace bandage..."oh, going as a mummy?" says I, "no, I just wanna wear an ace bandage" says he.

The shawl is fabulous! However, I'm not sure it'll go with Renfield's straightjacket!
