Crochet shawl

I made this crochet shawl while watching the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations on TV last weekend. I have since been trying to get some good light in the house to take pictures but it has chucked it down all week. Typical for a half-term holiday!

The shawl is a present for my mum, no particular reason, just because I fancied having a go. It crochets up quickly and after blocking it hangs beautifully. I used Rowan Cocoon wool which I'm nearly all out of now :(

Thankfully I recently started an instagram account so that I can get fairly good pictures in poor light!  The weather is pretty rubbish for June.  This weekend was not too bad though, we went to the zoo again yesterday and the boys are currently playing camping in the back yard!  School tomorrow :(

I want to get some quilting time in this week. not sure how I will though, my big brother has asked me to make him an outfit for a punk festival he is going to! so I will be working on that this week.  I must ask him if I can show you the pictures of him in it!

Hope you have had a good weekend!
