My obsession with HAED and crochet and yarn and stuff . . . . .

I've been hooking ....

my little hands off and I've got my first large project done!  It's the Anna Shawl from a pattern on Ravelry.  And I did it!! I even managed to follow the pattern! Ok there are a couple of mistakes, a single instead of a double crochet in one place and some missed chains but hey! it looks alright :-D

This is done in a purple dk cotton yarn (Vinni's) which was a bit of a toad to work with at times but on the whole I had great fun with it.  I do need to block the shawl out which will make it a bit bigger and will really open out the pattern.

I've already moved on to my next project, a scarf for a friend who is having a bad time at the moment.  I'm doing it in a super squooshy merino so it will be nice and soft.  I've nearly finished it but I won't post a picture until she has got it.
