Quick crochet shawl

I've had this solitary ball of variegated yarn for a while, just hanging about. I'm not really sure why I bought it, there's not much that's possible with just one ball and though I like the colours, they're not my colours. I'm much more into blues and greens and purples and cheerful rainbow brights.
Seeking something simple and quick I picked up a large hook. The yarn band called for 4mm; I used 7mm. I'm crocheting a granny triangle. I've enough yarn to make a small shawl, not for winter but for nights camping in August when there's enough chill to want something comforting.
These pictures were taken last week and I've nearly finished now.

colourful granny square blanket

 Last year I made lots and lots of little granny squares with scraps of yarn leftover from making my ripple blanket. I've been working on joining them all together now for a little while. It's a lot of fun deciding which colours to join together.

Flowers all over the place

It's been a damp, grey May so far, these flowers are almost making up for it.
