Things have been a little quite on the crafting front. Actually, I should clarify that – things have been a little quite on the sewing front.
My machine and I have a love/hate relationship, I’m either flat out on it or can’t stand the sight of it. At the moment I can’t even look at it but I have been going flat out on the hook and sticks. They are both so portable and I always go for patterns that can be easily remembered and this is another one of those.
Half Granny Shawl made for a friend up north.
It doesn’t get that cold in Queensland (well, not compared to Melbourne) so this scarf is the perfect weight to give a bit of extra warmth without being too heavy. This worked up so quickly and is another easy pattern that a beginner crocheter could master.
The pattern calls for lace yarn but I used Madelinetosh tosh merino light (which is fingering weight) with a larger hook, the result is a light and drapey scarf/shawl. I can’t say enough good things about Madelinetosh yarn, the softness, the colours….just lovely.
