Inspired by megknitficent’s Spanish Peacock Shawl, this was my wedding veil.

19 May - on row 98. Had a few days off at weekend for hen do, so far think I might just do it.

Have 20g of yarn left, but am still spinning some new up just in case - so far spun 3g+8g, approx.

26 May - on row 125, 2g of the first batch of yarn left, 4 rows to go before casting off. Time to get that second mini-skein finished up!

31 May - all blocked! Shawl measures approx 54” diameter. Cast off with an ordinary stretchy bind off, as attempting crocheting totally did my nut in (hook so shiny, yarn so slippy, argh).
