Knitting has sort of taken over lately, but I’ve been missing crochet and have been searching Ravelry for the perfect crochet pattern or idea. Inspiration came instead from Instagram, and I started a simple granny triangle shawl:
It’s more rainbow-y than what I usually go for in terms of the wide range of colors — usually my ombre yarns are more subtle and just shift through the hues and tones of two or three colors. I think this looks great for fall and winter though.
The yarn is Lion Brand Landscapes (new Aran) in 204 Desert Spring. It’s 100% acrylic & each ball is 147 yds. I have 4 balls but I think I’ll need more to make a decent sized shawl. If you are interested in getting this yarn, go to Wal-Mart, if there’s one around you, or order it on their website, where it’s under $5 per ball. On other online sites it can be upwards of $6.
The yarn is soft considering it’s acrylic and I hope it’s warm too — it’s finally starting to get cold here, at least in the mornings. It dropped below freezing for the first time this season last night!
Well that’s all for now. This is working up quickly so hopefully I’ll have an update soon! Hope everyone stays safe traveling if you’re in the US and celebrating Thanksgiving!
