I actually finished this shawl a week and a half ago, and figured that I'd post it. It came out smaller than I thought, and looked a little funny--then I realized that I in Row 2, I had done a half double instead of a dc, and repeated it all the way through the scarf. Oh well, it's only my second project in crochet, and with the number of times I frogged it (I can't count apparently) I could have made 3 of them.

My shoulders are a little too broad for this shawl, so I'm going to try to give it to someone (my friend says it looks a little too "granny" in that color as well.  Undecided I can't decide).

I like the color and I don't think it looks "granny" at all, but if you don't think you'll wear it, better to give it as a gift.  Nice job!

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

Great job on the Sweet Pea. I've been on and off working on mine for what feels like forever. I did mine in a light pink. This is the hardest project I've done, Congratulations Grin

Thanks! I like pink too. Plus, I think it looks rather good on my futon.

I think the "granny-ness" is determined by what you wear with it- I like the color. I am afraid to try that pattern though, mistakes would be too obvious!

I really like it. I'd wear it. But then, I'm a fan of grannies.

I used artful yarns Serenade (70% pima cotton, 30% angora). I got it for a steal, $4 a skein, and even have a few skeins left (I'm going to use it to make myself a scarf  Grin ). It's really soft, and its's made up of 3 colors, a light pink, orangy pink and a baby pink. I think I'm more in love with the yarn than the shawl   Roll Eyes

The Granny Factor is minimal- I think it looks wonderful.  Smiley
