It was sometime in January, when I was hitting a bit of a knitting slump, that I finally started this. I needed something easy, with no expectations whatsoever. I didn't know how long it would take to knit, I didn't know what I was going to do with it once it was done (still don't), but I needed to knit it.
I love how this yarn knit up-I knew as soon as I saw it in the store that it wanted to be this shawl, and look how right I was! It was so nice to work on something with no strings attached-I abandoned it on my bookshelf for over a month, I knit on it sporadically, and I didn't end up finishing it until I had those rough couple of weeks the end of March and needed to take some time to slow down and refocus. And since I had no plan for it, I didn't mind leaving the blocking for a while. But now it's a good little shawl, and I'm really glad I finally got around to it.
