Half Granny Shawl

Tah-dah!  Just finished it up.  I am loving it right now.  The yarn is actually from a Good Will scarf I bought for a couple bucks because I liked the yarn.  Took it home and frogged the scarf.  I had a pretty sock yarn at home I wanted to blend it with. 
I am pretty pleased.  It is kind of fascinating how it changes color.  One moment it has a purple look, then a brown look.   My granny square/crocheting obsession is in full swing right now, and nothing could make me happier.  I think it is because I am wanting fall to get her so badly.  Right now the heat and humidity are brutal and I am inside crocheting scarves and shawls.  Sounds crazy!
I really like the border.  I used the border pattern from Doris Chan's, All Shawl.  It is a free ravelry download.  I am now wanting to give the entire pattern a try.  Looks fun and quick, and very pretty.

Here is a closeup snap on the border!

Here is a sneak peak to what I am up to now.  I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet. 

Have a great week everyone!!

This is beautiful! Love the play of colors -- do you have a pattern for this? I have some yarn that would be perfect for this shawl. Thanks!

I love it! And, I'm amazed at how you found great yarn in a thrift shop scarf. Great job!

Funny...I'm doing the same thing...inside crocheting and knitting cowls and scarves and it's over 100' outside! It's fun though! :-D

I just found your blog this morning and immediately started following it. I love it! So colorful, happy, and full of great projects!

Great granny shawl! Love the purples. You will love the All-Shawl, and it is easy once you get going. I've made several. They are always so pretty. I've made her CocoBay shawl too, which is basically the same thing with some color changes. Nice to see you are hooking!

Love this so much! Summer here (in Michigan) is actually much cooler than usual, so working on a shawl (or an afghan - my current project) would not be out of order at all!
Do you have a pattern for this? It's quite beautiful!

Love what you did by frogging the old and adding the new to make a lovely scarf. Like everything about it. Very clever.

I just searched some knitting and crocheting blogs - and I found you. I am so happy :) I love your granny shawl - I never thought about granny squares this way. And the color... I love it!

Too bad I haven't found beautiful yarn from thrift shops. Maybe I just don't know how to look :)

Anyway, nice job. I'll be back :)

Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: or you can contact him through his website fb page Https:// and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
