Hello Everyone,

It’s been a while since I last blogged. Honestly, I can’t remember what I blogged about. A lot has happened n the world and in our communities where I needed to take another break from everything. I’ve post on Instagram here and there but I still get overwhelmed with everything that’s going on especially within the African American community because it directly affects me as I’m an African American woman.

I’ve been making and designing shawl, cowl and hat patterns for the fall but I haven’t been motivated to write them up nor publish them. To some that might sound ridiculous, but for me it’s how my brain and body takes care if itself. If I’m overwhelmed I will stop doing everything to get my peace of mind along with mental and physical health back by any means necessary and for me that means not designing. Designing can be very overwhelming because of the “Will they like it enough to buy it?” that goes through your mind on a continuous loop.

As the months have gone by we find ourselves in new territory. I’ve never worked from home before the pandemic happened and quite frankly, I’m still getting used to it even though I’ve been doing it since MARCH. I find that some days I have free time and other days I’m busy from early morning to late afternoon when I stop work.

Today was one of those slow days so I decided to write this pattern up and post it to my blog! I designed and made this shawl last August. After many iterations, I finally decided on the classic granny stitch triangle. If you made or seen my Picots and Valleys pattern then you should be familiar with the granny stitch pattern and construction of this shawl.

I was inspired by a building colors and shape that’s next to my job. I loved the colors so much I sourced out yarns that matched them exactly and I found them on WeCrochet. Did you know that WeCrochet is the sister company to Knit Picks? It’s a website for crocheters and yarn enthusiasts. I used their Capretta Fingering , Gloss Fingering and Bare Stroll Glimmer Fingering for this shawl. So enough of my yammering, the pattern is down below. You can also get an inexpensive pdf here
