My Leftie.......finished at last.

Hello my friends, how are you all? I'm so happy to tell you all, that I've finished my Leftie, at last!!!! I cast this shawl on by Martina Behm back in August, last year. I bought the Five Moons Sweetie box of mini skeins from Unwind Brighton with this pattern in mind.

Zena and I had decided to knit it at the same time, we even met up in Birmingham for a coffee and to knit on them together. It didn't take Zena long to finish hers but I admit I got bored with mine and started working on other projects.

I picked it back up this month as I wanted to finish all my WIPs before I cast on anything new, this was the last WIP that I worked as it was the largest. After picking it back up and knitting on it monogamously, I actually began to enjoy it. I knit on it whenever I could including car knitting, I loved seeing the bright pop of colours running across the shawl.

 

Here is my finished Leftie, I love how it turned out, the colours are so vibrant, this is going to be for a friend's birthday, I hope she likes it. I'm just happy it's finished so I could start some new projects.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend.

A happy shawl perfect for the upcoming Valentine's day. Super smart to use mini skeins for those darts of color.

I absolutely adore that shawl. I am not much of a shawl wearer, but I could see myself wearing that one. I must look into that pattern.
