It hasn't just been all shirts all the time this year. I found myself a week and a half ago with a wild urge to crochet a shawl using some mill-ends I bought back in 2013. I'd planned to make a hat, maybe something stripey, but it somehow never happened.
Anyway. Variation on the basic granny square triangle, balls of yarn arranged in increasing size so that the stripes remained more or less the same width, crocheted until I didn't have enough left of each colour to finish another row. Also added an extra four rows at the end because I still had yarn left.
