I made this for a Christmas swap, my partner likes capes, so I thought she'd probably appreciate a shawl too and I felt she was an auntmn-ish colour person from her photos, so I came up with this...




It's a basic granny shawl pattern in all sorts of colours from my stash, I used a 6mm hook and DK yarn, so it's not too heavy and it worked up quicker...she liked it..phew!

p.s NOT a good idea to take part in a swap while you're moving house! This made me soo stressed!  I posted it 4 days before Christmas, I'm lucky it got there in time!
