Knitting Notes

Pattern: Evenstar Shawl by Susan Pandorf
Yarn: Anzula Cloud in the Dusty Rose colorway
Needles: Size 4 circs and DPNs

I finally got around to blocking the Evenstar Shawl.

That was fairly exciting - even my bed wasn't quite big enough to do it completely flat.    Fortunately though, because I stocked up on blocking pins, I at least had enough to properly anchor it.

I really did enjoy this pattern - it's an absolute joy to knit.    Each chart was a little more exciting, and it really felt like the time I spent making it flew by.     But I did spend four months on it.     It was funny when I reached the border round - I had a really hard time believing I'd gotten that far.

This yarn was also lovely.    The touch of cashmere made it really nice to work with.

I would totally make this pattern again, if given a good excuse to.
