Not sure how I’ve not made any notes on this project so far. I have SO enjoyed knitting it!

The garter stitch centre was soothing and the perfect antidote to the endless 1x1 rib of my bubble yoke cardigan over Christmas.

I fully expected the lace borders to take me most of my lifetime to knit, but in actual fact, there are only 56 rows, and with 150-200 sts on each row, it actually went much, much faster than I anticipated. I was actually really sad about that! I was so enjoying working on it that I didn’t want it to end.

Now I’m onto the edging, and over one evening of pretty concentrated work I have completed half of the edging. I think that this evening I might stay up until it’s done. It feels like a good book that I can’t put down until I reach the end!

Finished shawl! It used 55g in total. Will block it in the morning.
