I finished this nearly a month ago, and sent it off to Norway for a shawl swap. It arrived in good time, but I was slack about posting it here.

So, without further ado, I present Shawl:

Roughly semicircular, used about 120g of lace weight yarn in two colours. I think it was a fairly even split of how much I used of each, but I didn't weigh what I had to start with so I can't say for sure.

There is a smaller version in my future, but there are a few other things to finish up first.

100 Day Hustle - Halfway

Just a quick catch up (and reminder to myself to blog a few things). Here is my original list, with progress

1. Finish knitting shawl (deadline mid October)
2. Assemble Christmas stocking
3. Lightweight jacket for The Monkey
4. New sunhat for The Monkey
5. Overdue wedding present to weave

And things that would be nice to get done:
1. Finish half made socks
2. Make a start on Papillon Around the World embroidery
3. Organise craft room some more!
4. Finish spinning purple corriedale

Links to finished projects to be added as I blog about them.

I clearly haven't been sticking with the more important projects when the other ones looked more fun!
