Instant Gratification

Despite having to sack my house elves this week, I have managed some me time this week. I wanted to make something that would grow quickly, not take too much brain power and would look cool with my autumn wardrobe.

A quick look on Ravelry resulted in this beautiful find, the Half Granny Square Shawl by Anastacia Zittel. It is working up really nicely. I am using Zauberball sock yarn and a 4mm crochet hook the pattern is very intuitive. Why not have a go yourself, Anastacia has very generously offered it as a free pattern. I would love to see your finished shawls, why not post a picture on my Facebook page.
