One A Day - Tuesday Tallies, A Ta-Dah!!

 
 
Whilst away I managed to get lots of hooky time in and I have now completed my lovely shawl!
I'm very pleased with how it's turned out and it's so warm and cosy - perfect for Sunday nights on the sofa with Downton!
 
Would you like to see it?  Silly question really :)
 



 


I found the pattern via Julie's blog and I used a 4.5mm hook and some lovely Hayfield Aran yarn.
 
So I'm now on task to complete my rainbow granny scarf in the next couple of weeks and then I think its onto my African Flower Blanket.
 
 
Make sure you pop over to Carole's to check out other Tuesday Tallies!

  17. Thank you so much for all of your lovely lovely comments, they mean a great deal to me! Yes I have a great love for vintage eiderdowns, although I find them pretty hard to come by these days and as for the wallpaper, it was from B&Q a couple of years back :)

  20. Yes, you did it! Your shawl is ready and mine too. Because of the colder weather I love to wear it in the evenings too. Oh, it's so beautyful and the scarf too.
    Have a nice week! Greetings from Germany. Sabine.
