So, I can now show you the "secret project".
Another of my friends was due a birthday at the end of June, and so I decided to hook her a shawl too. I ummed and arred at what pattern to use, style etc. And in the end I decided on a granny triangle shawl and planned to make it rather big and warm, because she has a large garden with a lovely big errection..hehehehe, (sorry injoke between friends), Gazebo and sits out there a lot, so I thought a nice warm shawl for cooler evenings would just be the ticket.
I used a Drops Design for the pattern and then just adapated it for what I wanted. The colours worked really well too, forest green, sage, buttermilk, pretzel and cinnamon - lol I also loved the names. The yarn is Rowan Pure Wool Aran, and I'm a little bit in love with this stuff, in part because it's from Holmfirth, which was a town I spent a lot of my childhood in :-) And yes, famous for Last of the Summer Wine.
But anyway, enough of the twitter eh, lets get to the photos:
This used approx:
3x100g of pretzel
1 3/4 x 100g forest green
1 3/4 x 100g sage
2 1/2 x cinnamon
1 1/2 x buttermilk
