Last FO of 2013
Once my Christmas knitting was done, I chose Crooked Cathedral by Marisa Hernandez as the special project that I would make just for me. I knit it in madelinetosh tosh merino light, in the Jasper colorway, which I'd had sitting in my stash and intended for this shawl since the summer.
This was an enjoyable knit, easy but not brainless. I went with the larger option for the shawl body, since I was hoping to use as much of my two skeins of TML as possible, but just made the normal lace border because I'm not a huge fan of lots and lots of lace. I still have almost one whole skein of the TML left, so in hindsight I might have stuck with the normal shawl body size, too, but I have no complaints.
While I was knitting this pattern, I wondered whether it would be my last FO of 2013, or my first of 2014 - but I finished it on the afternoon of New Year's Eve. As evidence of how busy 2014 has already been for me, I can't blog yet about my first FO of this year, because I haven't found time to get good photos of it yte.
