Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and got lots of crafting done :)
This weekend I started another shawl:
I'm using two cones of merino silk lace weight yarn from Colourmart and what I've done so far looks like a little heart:
I'm still working on the silk tranquility shawl and it's really coming along well now. Yesterday afternoon we watched a movie and I worked on it for 2 hours straight...
...I've only got a few more repeats of the main body to do and then I'll be moving on to the lace border.
I think it's only going to take one of the two cones of yarn so I'm already planning on what I can used the second cone for...
...It's like an illness really, I nearly finish one project but I already have a long list of ones I want to do next!
I saw a nice little crochet magazine at the weekend and I couldn't resist it. It's not very often that I find a magazine with more than one pattern I want to follow but this one has a few:
I bought it to make this purple stole. It's a stole, beret and glove set. I might end up making the complete set :)
I love this cowl and hat, the colours are right up my street too!
The yarn is called Darling and is made by Katia. The magazine is the Spanish translation of a German magazine called Diana. Katia is a Spanish yarn company and you can always find a Katia selection in any yarn store here so I thought it was funny that the yarn stores they listed for this particular yarn were all in Germany!
The other pattern I particularly liked was this one:
It is similar to the beautiful star burst grannies that I have seen on many blogs recently.
All for 2.50€ (around 2.19 pounds)!
