I thought the slow boats went to China, but I seem to be on a very SLOW boat to Estonia on this remake of the Lilac Leaf Shawl.
I can't fathom WHY it is taking me this long. But the good news is, now that I have brought it back out, I have only 2 more repeats of the center body to do before I head down the home stretch to the end, so, even at this snail pace, I should have it finished before too much longer.
It is a very nice pattern and strangely enough, as I knit it I have been pondering how much I'd like to knit it again but next time in a heavier weight yarn. (And maybe not red. )
I only have 12 more rows to go! Twelve rows that involve some nupps, but those are just fluffy speed bumps on the way to the finish line. Whooeee!
