It doesn't matter that I will never wear this thing, but it was just so lovely to make, I don't feel like I've wasted any time at all.
It's the Stellaria Shawl from Twist Collective, a beautiful crescent shaped shawl with lacy broad leafs.
The first half of this was really easy- it's all short rows back and forth and back and forth. I had cast on during the train ride up to Glasgow and worked on it here and there during the West Highland Way hike. By time time I was on the bus back to Glasgow, I had finished the short rows and was ready to move on to the lace, but that was exactly when the flu struck, and I spent the train ride back to London a shivering achy mess and couldn't stand the site of it.
A few weeks later, I picked it back up and finished the lace bit, and finished up in record time. Sometimes, I just need a break.
The best part? I found the yarn on sale at Liberty for £4.
