Crafty in the Med

I am here to enjoy meeting other bloggers and to share my love of craft ,mostly crochet, my thoughts and my daily happenings here in Alicante,Spain, my adopted country. I belong to a local choir because singing and music makes me happy. Flea markets and book shops are two of my favourite places to be. I read lots......sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I walk and walk and walk for about 10 months per year during the hot months I swim.

Well received ...sigh!!!


I made a shawl for my daughter for Christmas. I wanted a large shawl so she could wrap it around herself when she is at the computer in the school reception. It is a very drafty area.
As I mentioned I did want it large but after blocking it was really big .

I was a little bit worried about that but  she loved it so that's a relief!

I used Katia planet yarn and Nº 7 hook. It is a free Red Heart pattern. The Top-Down Shawl.

enjoy your holidays!!
