traffic jam (crochet simple granny triangle shawl)

I got stuck in the office on Monday night, not the best of situations but this estate I work on does get congested frequently and not helped by lorries breaking down blocking one lane of two. Anyway all was not lost because I'd had a new yarn delivery that morning and I needed an excuse to stop and crochet. And this is how this granny shawl got its name. Isn't it gorgeous? It's crochet in the new Sirdar Colourwheel DK yarn. On first inspection I wasn't that taken with it, but now I love it. No more colour changes, yipee.

If you'd like to know how to make this here is the Simple Granny Triangle pattern I'm using or this link. Happy crocheting!

glorious granny square blankets

I started making this one in January and finished it last night (more pics to follow!) I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, a little vintage twist with the border. I've made this for a friends litttle girl and I'm delivering it tomorrow night after work. Just enough time for lots of photos tonight and then the wrapping and writing out the wash care instructions.


The large colour block one was sold last week, my customer sent me some great shots of it in its new home ............. a new camper van! I love the fact its going to be well traveled.
