OPAM.....My JANUARY finish.

How people have different likes!!
This shawl is for my daughter.
Of all the colours she could have chosen, she chose charcoal grey!!
  This is my back to show the stitch.. it was a free Ravelry pattern, South Bay Shawlette..a two row repeating pattern. 
The wool is Berroco which is 50%wool, 20% alpaca and 30%nylon .. it feels quite heavy and is very warm.  The colour is Salt and Pepper and I used a 5mm hook.. it took two 100g hanks, bought from Love Knitting..
Although I enjoy crocheting, I found this difficult to do because of the colour, but it was what she wanted... so I hope she wears it all day and every day and every blinging night too!!!

Happy Days.
PS. Having finished this I am enjoying my evening knitting a cardigan for myself while outside the wind is swirling round huge snowflakes!!

That looks nice and cosy, perfect for the snowy conditions recently.
