I started this shawl with much enthusiasm back in early November and then completely stalled on it. I was going to write that I have no idea what drew me away from working on it but looking at the calendar there's a very obvious answer... the holidays! I got distracted by more "important" knits with looming deadlines and despite my very real love for this yarn, colourway and pattern I didn't pick it up again until February. Full disclosure… I kinda stalled about 1/5 of the way through the border and my sweet mother volunteered to finish it for me. I LOVE this pattern and colourway but had too much going on at the time and it deserved to be finished! Mom’s a saint. I’m so happy with the finished results. It’s pastel perfection!
Would you just look at that gorgeous french braid border! There is very little I enjoy more than a good braid. It's just so lovely. I'm very happy with how the Milkyway colourway knit up and I think that I'll be featuring it in an Etsy Update soon. I can think of a lot of things that I'd like to knit in this colourway, particularly heading in to spring! So pretty.
