A Long Time Coming

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the long long absence. End-of-school and finals and trips to NYC and Canada have kept me very busy the past month and a half. I have a lot to share with you but I'll start with my latest FO:

Pattern: Springtime Bandit
Project Link: Ravelry Page

This is my first lace/shawl project EVER and I loved every minute of it. Even when I messed up and had to rip back (saw K2 P to last 2 stitches, K2 as K2 P2 across... though edge chart only charted odd rows like others - it doesn't) I still enjoyed seeing the beautiful patterns I was creating. I used Malabrigo Merino Worsted in 'purple magic.' It was a dream to work with and the color is beautiful!(and I have some leftover :) )

Unfortunately, my love for lace knitting does not match my love of wearing shawls (none) so I plan to wear this more as a scarf.

This was also my first experience blocking something. I may have to block it again, it kind of contracted back in on itself.

I'll have more updates soon!
