Shawls and Jewellery

Hello there! In my last post I had a lot of indecision about the white shawl I was making, as much as I love crocheting granny patterns my half granny shawl project wasn't settling with me. Therefore I frogged it and went looking for another pattern. After a conversation with my fiancĂ©'s mum about baby shawls, she recommended that the best shape to make a shawl is a circular one as they wrap around the baby much better than a square/triangular shawl. Although Ravelry didn't have any patterns that I like, so I did a Google search for a round baby shawl and found a lovely pattern. 
The pattern required super bulky yarn and a 9mm hook, but I substituted this with aran yarn and a 5.5mm. It means that mines is much smaller and I will have to add a lot more rounds than the pattern asks for to achieve the size that I would like. I could imagine making lots of doilies with this pattern in thinner yarn as it is very pretty. 
Recently I seen Wink from a creative being post a photograph of a lovely necklace on her facebook, and I just simply had to have one! A crochet hook necklace that is made by lovely Nicole, who sells them through her Etsy Shop along with other lovely items. She made me a 4.5mm crochet hook and my necklace chain is 16 inches, and I put it on as soon as I opened the package. Super super excited.
Other than that, I am having a pretty chilled out weekend which I don't tend to get very often. I am taking a small break on the shawl so I can work on my granny square blanket.

Hope you are all having a good weekend!

  7. Lovely necklace. The doily looks fab too, I have been seeing a lot of these lately amongst friends. Especially love the big floor rugs people are making in this style. Will have to make one myself soon. Your blog layout is looking really nice! I really do find blogs easier to read when they are on a white background. :-)
