A completed something.....

Revontuli Shawl.

This was a really nice project to knit on the go. I could pick it up and each row was easy to follow. I loved the yarn. Kauni Effektgarn Wool. It's a bit rough, but I gave it a wash, rinse, and then soak for about 30 minutes, and it softened up a bit. A bit. Sorry but I don't have a photo of me wearing it as nobody is home to take the blocked on the floor is all I can do.

I originally purchased this yarn because I fell in love with this pattern, but then decided that I probably hadn't ordered enough to make for my size. So it's getting used up in other projects that won't be close to the body. I'll have enough to try a felted project...we'll see.

That's it for now. I'm looking forward to a hopefully quiet weekend.
Wishing you all peace as well this weekend.
