Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
Hem. Don’t let the fact that it took two years and a few months to finish this project dissuade you. This is one of my favorite projects EVER.
Project: MooSon I’ve known since before I cast on that this item was destined for a friend. The yarn was even dyed by a mutual friend, just for this project.
Pattern: Moonlight Sonata Shawl It’s certainly not the pattern’s fault that I kept putting this down. It’s a well-written, easy to read (meaning the lace itself) pattern. Life just kept getting in the way and I kept shuffling this project aside.
Yarn: Gypsyknits Merino Superwash in a custom color. I simply told Kathy what pattern I had selected and she blended the hues with Jessi in mind. I know Jessi loves it, but I’m thinking I’m going to have to make myself footies or a narrow scarf out of the leftovers. Unfortunately, Kathy isn’t dyeing yarns right now, but hopefully one of these days, life will cooperate and we’ll all have the pleasure of seeing more of her fabulous colors play out in yarn!
Needles: Ravelry says I used a US #5 circular. That’s all I can tell you. That’s what happens when you drag a project out forever.
Verdict: I’d definitely consider this pattern again. Maybe one day when it’s not 104 with a heat index far above that, Jessi will model it for all of us, but she’s in the deep south, so don’t look for that photo before oh… late November?
Because of the soft green in there, I also considered this a green project spectrum project.
I’m looking forward to my cloudy with a chance of drizzle weekend. I plan on doing a lot of knitting, some League work, some shopping because fewer and fewer of my clothes fit, and I still have hopes for a movie with the Knight
whether he likes it or not. What’s on your weekend agenda?
