The Easter holidays are over and much fun was had by all… Although I’m glad to be back in the school routine today! We had a few day trips out and spent some time with our families, and got to meet my brand new nephew. I hope he will like his amigurumi rattle when he is bigger.
In between days out I have tried to have a sort out of all my craft stuff. I don’t think I was quite brutal enough in getting rid of stuff but it definitely looks tidier.
I finished my Granny Triangle Shawl which has been in my work basket for some months now, unfinished, as I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I bought Simply Crochet magazine as a treat a couple of weeks ago, and the flower brooch kit that came with it got me thinking- the colours in it would look great for my shawl’s border! I ordered the yarn to finish it, and tah dah! I now have a super snugly shawl/scarf, just in time for summer…! I’m sure this rather chilly spring weather will mean I get some use out of it. I’ve used Drops Karisma in Light Olive (main colour), Forest Green, Medium Pink, Dark Old Pink and Wine Red. Drops Karisma is 100% Wool, it’s nice and soft with just the right amount of scratchiness. I’ve found a pattern for some fingerless gloves I think I’ll make using the left over yarn.
