FO: Wilshire shawl

Oh happy day! I’ve finished this shawl in time and am so happy with how it turned out!

Pattern: Wilshire shawl
Yarn: Lana grossa lace merino in colour Lilla


I started this shawl a month ago and since it was intended as a birthday gift it had to be done before yesterday. On monday I finished all the knitting and on tuesday I quickly blocked it and weaved in the ends. Yesterday it was wrapped and on to Amsterdam I went. I’m delighted to say my friend loved it! She knows I’m a quite fanatic knitter and I told her I made her a present. I think she was expecting a pair of socks, but this was much better of course. Also my yarn over mistake really isn’t noticeable, probably due to the amount of yarn overs throughout the shawl.

I’m also very happy with the yarn. It is so soft and quite elastic. I don’t think I have one bad thing to say about it. And the colour is really nice as well. Plus I still have plenty left for another big shawl, yay!

Now I feel like casting on some stuff that is a bit more seasonal and warm. And one big cast off equals at least 5 new cast ons right?
