Crochet baby shawl and chunky wrap.

I'm in the process of making another pink baby shawl for my friends baby who is due on my birthday!! Crochet in baby pink 4ply with a 3.50mm hook. The pattern is from The Crochet Bible which is well worth a buy as it has some lovely projects in it and all the stitches you could wish to know.

I've also started making a shawl for myself, well more of a wrap I guess. I'm using chunky wool and a 9.00mm hook to do Granite Stitch, I just love working with this soft purple wool and my lovely purple shiny hook, easily pleased !


  1. The baby shawl is very pretty :)

    I love the purple yarn!

  2. They're both lovely, but I do love purple :-)

    I made a granite stitch scarf and its by far my favourite stitch (so far, anyway!)
