So, it would seem the Virus Shawl is pretty hot right now. Absolutely loads of people were attempting it on the Bella Coco facebook group I’m a member of and I really loved that way it looked. Despite the fact I still have a C2C blanket on the go, I really couldn’t wait to try it.… Continue reading The Virus Shawl
