granny along

My blogging continues on thanks mainly to the generosity, inspiration and encouragement of others for which I m so grateful. I am truly loving doing this and cannot wait daily to see who has visited and from where (Tel Aviv and Lebanon had me agog!! Welcome if that was you xx) You're  quiet bunch but I get that, I am too. I love to read the pictures but I also  am getting braver and have always been welcomed when I do say Hi. I am currently very inspired by attic 24’s use of colour and the very simple crochet techniques. I am trying to work with the cheery colours and make a granny stripe shawl

Here are my yarns and early efforts. I am trying to write the pattern if anyone is interested. I also am trying to   include a video of the ‘magic circle’ technique that I use to start the project. Not my invention you understand but once I learned it I use it all the time. I can’t decide whether its cool or belongs in the 70’s. Its fun though. I will beetle off and write the pattern. More photos as it grows
