Introducing ...

May Lilac - my latest scarf.
I have called this square May Lilac because when my daughter was born, there was a row of lilac trees in bloom in the hospital grounds outside my window.  This square reminds me of the tiny lilac flowers.  Unfortunately my lilac tree hasn't got any buds on it this year.
 This is the first granny square that I have designed myself and I am quite pleased with how it has turned out.
 The 15 squares are crocheted in Debbie Bliss Andes on a 3.5mm hook.
It is so soft to wear.  I like to have lots of different scarves to wear, as where I work it can be quite chilly in winter.
I still have a pale pink and a silver grey in this yarn to turn into more scarves and I have been looking on-line for inspiration.
