The pattern is called Cloud and is from the Rowan book 'Misty in Light and Shade' by Kim Hargreaves. It is supposed to make up a 60" x 30" triangle from 4 balls but I fancied a bigger wrap to use in the van so I started with 226 stitches. I could have gone a bit bigger as it truns out but the shawl is still a good size, too big to photograph to be honest. I had to wait for a hook to start this project. It calls for a 9mm which is pretty hard to get but the ladies at the Nimble Thimble got them in for me. It's the first time I jave used a wooden hook and I loved it. I think it was quicker and easier to use than the metal or plasic ones. I made this shawl in 3 days and loved every minute of it.
I've already been in touch with the shop about my next project. When I was there I saw broomstick crochet for the first time. It looks fun and I want to play. My broomstick is already on order, I am sure they will be able to find me some suitable yarn and a small wooden crochet hook too. If you fancy having a go at this pattern the shop has it on special offer at the moment and even if they have sold out of the hooks again they will happily order them in for you.
