Myf had to dress up at school for St David's Day in a traditional Welsh costume-we have one but the shawl that came with it was lost ages ago! It wasn't much of a shawl really, more a strip of cloth but as it was fairly cold and Myf's started off the year with a chest infection, I really needed to make sure she had as many layers as possible. So I had a look at the 'Happy Hooker' book that my lovely biggest sister got me started on crochet with and decided to give the 'Sweet Pea' shawl a try.
I thought that halving the pattern would be wise as she didn't need a huge one and after spending two hours crocheting it wrong, I finally figured out where I was reading the pattern wrong and got it done! Then Myf came home from school and I panicked it would be too small :-( But it was perfect! The shawl on a Welsh costume only just goes across the shoulders so it worked out well. All this was the day before St David's Day so I also had to make two daffodils for her to wear and this is how cute she looked:

In other news I am suffering greatly with an impacted wisdom tooth that literally is making me cry so I turn to my beloved granny squares to calm and soothe me..........I've got a few projects on the go at the moment-hopefully I can share some pictures soon! :-)
