Hi! It’s Rapunzel again. As a reminder, I’m doing guest posts for Cogaroo while she’s away – I’m happy to be back and sharing another project with you.
I’m especially excited about this one because it was a very time-consuming project…and I really like how it turned out.
Yes, I made a granny triangle shawl! Cogaroo let me use this fancy skein of yarn from her stash. Purple is my favorite color (which you probably guessed), and I loved all the shades of purple in the yarn.
Please excuse the dead grass in the picture above. Also, this yarn is very difficult to photograph – the color is darker than that in real life. But it’s so warm and cozy. (You might think it’s weird to be crocheting a shawl in summer, but the air conditioning is on indoors and it gets pretty cold.)
Cogaroo helped me take these pictures before she left, but here’s a selfie I took:
In this picture I rolled up the shawl and tied it around my neck, kind of like a bandanna.
If you’re interested in making a granny shawl, there are tons of patterns floating about the blogoverse. This pattern looks to be what I did. I used an “I” hook and some unlabeled bulky weight yarn – it felt kind of wooly.
Another picture, just because! I’m wearing it now as I type. 🙂
Well, I’m running a little shorter on time today, so I think I’ll end this post here. I’m really enjoying this whole blogging business. Maybe I can convince Cogaroo to make me a blog! 😉
Hope you’re all having a wonderful day,
✿ Rapunzel ✿
