At the beginning of the week I finished my granny star baby shawl, and I love it! I started this shawl at the beginning of May after I seen a granny star pin on Pinterest, and I thought it would be stunning as a baby shawl. I gave it to my work colleague during the week after I blocked it, and she adores it. It is the greatest feeling when you give someone something you have made and you see how much they like your work.
I tried out the picot edging for the first time, and I think it really suits this shawl. From point to point it measures approximately 46 inches! And I lost count how many balls of yarn I used for this as it just seemed to eat them away!
Now that I have finished this shawl, I only have one main crochet on the go which is the baby blanket for my future nephew. I plan to blog about it on Tuesday for my One A Day as I didn't post this week about it, I now have two weeks progress to show off!
Oh! I also got to go to Edinburgh Zoo on Monday and it was fantastic! My sister wanted to take my nephew Zak to see all the different animals, and I think he was most fascinated with the meerkats as he sees them on TV a lot! They are very cute, and a lot smaller than I imagined them to be.
We also got tickets to see the pandas, and both Tian Tian (female) and Yang Guang (male) were both snoozing away when we got to the panda section. Although they are used to sleeping up to 16 hours a day, which is very similar to cats I think. On this occasion we were lucky as Tian Tian woke up and decided to have a leisurely stroll around her play area, she is beautiful!
Well that is all the news I have for for you today, and I hope you all have had a good weekend!
