I have been knitting this shawl for a long time. I started it because I thought it would be beautiful in the yarn. I started and stopped several times because it just wasn't grabbing my attention. I turned my attention to other things, like spinning and other knitting projects. I knit until I ran out of yarn. I waited a couple of months. I ordered more yarn. Eventually it arrived. I was in the middle of other projects. Finally I picked it back up again. And. I finished it. It was a long knit for me. I continue to be enamored of the yarn (I have 1.5 balls left now.) I really love the way that the zephyr is both warm but also very soft and delicate, and I love the way it catches the light.
I have already worn this a few times. I wear it like a scarf, but it is also a beautiful wrap. I just love it. In my next post I will talk about my other projects.
