A January Finish!

It might not be much, but at least it qualifies as a finish. The shawl has dropped a bit (opened up) more since it's been on the hanger.
I saw this pattern at the Jenny King Crochet stand at a recent craft show. The sample was made up in a brilliant blue thread - recycled sari silk respun.
I used a bright pink thread - 'Brilla' - a cotton/ viscose mix.
I took a while getting used to using the recommended hook for this project. It uses a 16 mm (Q) hook size! It was like crocheting with crowbar!!!!
The shawl should look good over a white or black singlet top.
I have been working on my swap gift for this year's Girls' Day in the Country at Nundle. I'll only be able to show a sneak peek as it is a secret. We had to use an 'Anni Downs' pattern as Anni is the guest tutor again this year.
I've also finished my Gardener's quilt top. Now for the quilting. Lookout Nundle, I might even make it.
Take care everyone.
