Sometimes I like to crochet without having to concentrate very much, in particular the first Wednesday of the month at Knitting Club. We meet in a pub, lets say difficult crochet and a few shandy's do not mix! Sometimes I have looked at my work the next morning and thought 'jeez' that needs to be frogged!
Anyway a little while ago I discovered a really simple 'granny' stitch shawl, from ABC Knitting Pattern, on Ravelry, its a free download, a no brainer really, and simple to follow.
I had been gifted some lovely Ripples Crafts yarn in a special shade called Ancient Hill Tartan. Sumptuous moss greens, rich ambers and a delicious chocolate brown, the colours whisked me away to Scottish climes! The simple pattern lent itself to this delightful 4ply yarn, made up of 75% Bluefaced Leicester and 25% Nylon. Its quite a soft yarn to crochet with, handles really well, no splitting. I am aiming to finish it for Autumn, to wrap round and keep out the chills when I am out and about on Doris. Here's a picture of my progress so far, as you can see the pictures don't do the yarn justice.
If I have enough yarn left then I am thinking I might make a matching 'Tam'. Until next time..............Nicky xxx
