Granny's Shawl


I've been knitting so many little things recently, I fancied a bit of big (for me!) knitting. My mum was saying that she would like a little shawl to put around her shoulders, or even over her knees in the cold weather, so this is what I have made. 

It is knitted from a free pattern available on Craftsy, called Lacey Zig Zag Shawl. I think perhaps I should have picked a brighter colour, but my mum is very much a green lady, so I am hoping she will like it. She doesn't get it until the weekend, but she is not a computer user so I can be safe that she won't see it here. 

The wool I used is Rowan Calmer, and I just kept knitting until I ran out. This was a fairly easy knit, with just two rows repeating. It is quite nice just to settle into a knit and not have to refer to the pattern. And after my big knit, I will probably return to something little and fiddly ...
