HomeCraftTreasures~ Lacy Shawl {Review and Giveaway} #LLRGiftGuide2015

Are you the type of person who is always cold? Like, need-a-sweater-all-the-time-cold? I admit I have a hard time relating to you because I am just the opposite. (Probably has something to do with menopause. Ugh)

Anyway, my cousin Judy is definitely an always cold person. She carries a sweater with her everywhere. She bundles up big time when she's at my house since I keep the furnace a wee bit low. :) Recently we went to breakfast together and she remarked about the inconvenience of having to carry that bulky sweater with her all the time. I mentioned that she needed a lightweight option, and I was certain I had just the thing for her.

When we got to my house, I gave her a gorgeous, soft lacy shawl that I received in the mail from HomeCraftTreasures. She loved it immediately. Not only is the shawl beautiful, but is also lightweight and still managed to keep her warm. Score!

The delicate shawl doubles as a scarf and is made with Department 71 Dainty Lace mohair yarn. It is bordered with 15 crocheted flowers and edged with Solomon's Knot rows that are tipped with cluster stitches. The combination of chain, single, double, double treble, long double crochet and cluster stitches give this shawl and airy, elegant look.

Maureen and Suzanne, the ladies who own and operate HomeCraftTreasures on Etsy, remarked that their love of knitting and crocheting is what has kept their friendship strong for over 29 years.

If you are looking or a unique gift for any female on your list- especially for the always-cold girls, you are certain to find something special at HomeCraftTreasures.  I know some friends of mine who would love a gift of a scarf made by Maureen or Suzanne. Also, their christening gowns and childrens clothing are simply stunning.  I wish I had a pregnant friend or one with a new baby because the blankets by Home Craft Treasures look so soft!  Personally, I have my eye on this gold glitter shawl. {Hint. Hint.} It looks so luxuriously soft; doesn't it?
