I wore it yesterday to work at 7:30pm as it was freezing cold out and it wasn't much better either when I finished class at 2:00pm but at least it kept me snugly warm.

These are the mountains I can see in the distance from my window and it snowed yesterday morning which doesn't mean it snowed here in the city but the icy cold today is telling you it certainly snowed nearby.

Being Sunday morning lots and lots of Alicantinos will be traipsing off up to the Carresqueta mountain to see the snow. Personally I'll pass on that I shall be off out for our Sunday morning walk somewhere nearby where there is no snow. As you can see it is a beautiful morning this morning...taken 32 mins ago ... courtesy of https://www.facebook.com/AlicanteCity/?fref=ts

Back to what I call my Me Me shawl. I have never made myself a shawl!!! I have started to make one for myself umpteen times but somehow they got given away usually to a member of the family. I am sure you know what I mean :-)
It is big and cosy!
I think what I really like most about this shawl other than it was very straight forward to make is the edging. I particularly like it! It stands out! What do you think? :-)
This Me Me shawl is really called a Penelope Shawl and was designed by Carolyn Christmas and I downloaded the free pattern from here . I have used Katia Planet yarn which is Aran 10 ply and a 4.00 crochet hook. It took me about a month to complete. I am sure other crocheters will be able to make it in less time. I can only crochet in my spare time and there never seems much of that.
Enjoy your Sunday!
PS: I did have 229 followers but I see 10 have flittered away. It is a bit baffling but I am inclined to think this is Blogger tidying things up as I have read on several posts that other bloggers have lost followers suddenly in the same way too!
