Ok....so I have had this pattern in my pile of "I would like to knit this" for 15 years and finally a yarn came along that was perfect. You know what they say....will use no yarn before it's time (stash) and no pattern before it's yarn. I know it's what I say to myself to sleep at night in a house full of unfinished projects and yarn. I picked up this lovely yarn from Briar Rose and the Michigan Fiber Festival last August. I love it!
I began the shawl in November and quickly put it aside for other projects....I know, it was sad...but this month, I finished it and I love it. It's exactly what I had hoped it would be.
