According to my notes on this project on Ravelry, I started in May 2008. The knitting wasn't difficult and I was loving the fabric it was producing, I just kept getting bored/distracted while working on it. I finally decided to just finish already on Sunday and here she is.
Pattern: Based on the Diamond Lattice lace chart from the Drawstring Chemise in the Spring 2008 Interweave Knits.
Yarn: My handspun, Seascape. Approximately 550 yards. I used all but about a yard of it. The yarn is about a fingering weight and is so soft and ... sigh. I love it.
Measurement: 18" x 72"
I can use it as a stole for all the super dressy events I attend, but I'll most likely use it more as a scarf.
(I just realized these aren't the most in-focus pictures. I need to figure out the self-timer on
It's light and fluffy and warm and cozy all at once. It's a welcome burst of color in a dreary February in Calgary.
Did I mention I love it?
One more for good measure:
I'm so very glad I finally finished this knit. I wish it hadn't taken me so long. Sigh. Did I mention I love it?
