Thanks to the blog, I'm able to check when this project was first started, and it was in August last year. Certainly not too long compared to my other UFOs but long enough. I had wanted to add another tier of blue/grey yarn but decided that I want to finish it as a shawlette and use the yarn for another shawl project.
I like it at this size, just enough to cover the shoulders on a chilly spring evening or on the bus when the air-con is stronger than desired.
To recap, this pattern is the Eva Shawl, free pattern available here. I made the border differently, simply in chain loops because it was an impromptu decision to FO this shawlette and because that's all the grey yarn I have left.
My inspiration came from these three shawls. The yarns I used are 4 ply weight leftovers, odd balls I have in stash and the fibres are a mixture of silk, cashmere and alpaca, while the hook I used was 5mm.
Another FO to be finished, husband's Morris. The knitting for the main parts is done for quite a while but the finishing is taking forever. After this, I really would like to move on to some summer knitting. There is another pair of socks on the needles which should be finished soon. And then I would like to knit a cardigan for JY. Any idea for a pattern for lacy summer cardigan for a to-be 9 year old?
And since the weather is warming up, you might have noticed in the photos that I've cut my hair to above the shoulder. What a breeze it is now when it comes to shampoo time :).
