I'm in the process of making another pink baby shawl for my friends baby who is due on my birthday!! Crochet in baby pink 4ply with a 3.50mm hook. The pattern is from The Crochet Bible which is well worth a buy as it has some lovely projects in it and all the stitches you could wish to know.
I've also started making a shawl for myself, well more of a wrap I guess. I'm using chunky wool and a 9.00mm hook to do Granite Stitch, I just love working with this soft purple wool and my lovely purple shiny hook, easily pleased !
