Joining in with the yarn along today.
This week I have been working on this shawl for a friends birthday, I can't remember what the pattern was as a just jotted it down on a piece of paper, it was off ravelry but as I can't remember the name I don't seem to be able to find it again. It is crocheted and is sort of half a granny square so you turn at the corners instead of going around and around. It has some variation in stitches but the basic idea stays the same. It has been really enjoyable and I have been able to work on it while reading a book or something as it is not too demanding. Also, I have had this beautiful silk yarn in my stash for ages just waiting for an opportunity and it is a pleasure to use.
This week I started a sparkly knitted shrug for faith too. For years I have made faith things that I think are nice out of lovely 100% wool yarns and traditional patterns and she has liked them and worn them (a bit!), but this time I decided that that is me, I'm into the natural yarns and things and that she is my little disco girl and what she likes is sparkle. So... I find myself with this 100% acrylic yarn in hand and I know that she is going to love this better than anything else I have made for her. What can you do?!
Not much reading for me this week as I have been diving into my homeschool planning for next year. Anyone else into this yet?
Happy yarn along x
