A bit poorly over night....think I have caught my sons bug, so between sleeps I pick up the hook and add a couple more motifs.
It's made with Chunky or two strands of DK and a 5mm hook so it really is growing quite fast.
All Stylecraft Life and a couple of Special DK and James C Brett Marble Chunky
I need a couple of new cushion covers to go with the throw so a sample of a Moss stitch variation, this one is a bit more mesh like....another quick and easy stitch combo.
The Motif is from my book, Granny Squares, with a couple of changes to the first two rounds....more because of the chunky yarn used.

A real quickie....
the only reason it isn't finished I ran out of wool. I need to go for a look around in the craft room. What is here so far just over the hour to make.
I'm not going to buy more as I only need a few yards to finish it off, so it will be what i can find in the craft room....

Looks like the Wizz Yarn has been around for a while I found, when I started to look on Ravelry for yarns.....118 projects in the making it seems!
My scarf is a just a few rows short of being finished, just want to match up the ends a bit better.
I had planned on playing with the yarn, trying s few different patterns to see which worked best.
A Granny square was one of them....to be made into a shrug.
I thought it might work as a granny but when i saw this Giant Granny made in the same colour Wizz Aran by.....
Mesh Scarf Pattern
Row 1: htr, in each st. (39sts)
Row 2: 3tr, 3hdc, 3tr 3hdc, repeat to end finish with 3tr.
Row 3: repeat row 1
Row 4 repeat row 2
continue to repeat rows 1 and 2 until the length required
Don't you just love the ease of a random dyed yarn, no ends to deal with, well almost none.
My scarf is about a ball...200grams. and I used a 4mm hook not a 5mm as recommended.
HAPPY HOOKING ALL

Happy New Year to you all
Sorry for the delay in posting, i've been trying to do this post for 3 days now.....do I need a new laptop?
For 2014 I am going to choose a different inspiration.
January 2014 is Aboriginal Art....a collection of pictures has been added to a folder on Pintrest here
and a quick play with an idea yesterday to start me off.
Happy Hooking to all in 2014
