Happy Birthday to Me

As you’ve probably guessed from the title of this post, it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve just received a present that was purchased with money from my Grandmother – twenty balls of 100% cotton yarn!  Unfortunately the order has been stuffed up a bit since I received only nineteen balls and some of the colours are different.  But the yarn I did get is beautiful, so good I could almost eat it!

Also, I’ve started a new crochet project, one which I’m extremely excited about.  My niece is into everything black, pink and white, and is on board the Monster High train.  Absolutely loves the emo/goth/punk fashion.  So I’ve decided to make her a skull shawl!  I found the most beautiful black wool with tiny sparkling strands throughout, and below is my progress so far.  It’s crocheting up surprisingly quickly, and I should well and truly get this done in time for Christmas.

Skull Shawl Progress

With a bit of weight in the shawl once I get some more lines done, the little skulls should flatten out and be more obvious.  I think it’s adorable, and hopefully my niece will too 🙂
