It took me over a year to finish knitting, and a few months to get around to blocking and photographing. But my Lune Shawl is finally done!
Pattern: Lune Shawl by Miriam L. Felton
Yarn: Schaefer Anne in an unknown colorway
Needles: US1 / 2.5mm Inox Express circular
Obviously, I did the stockinette version – I wasn’t sure how well the colorway would play with the lace patterning.
It’s an easy knit, and a clearly written pattern, but I didn’t really enjoy it once I got about halfway through, just because the rows kept getting longer and longer without anything to hold my interest. Which is part of why it took me so long to work on. I almost never reached for this project if there was another one nearby, because it wasn’t as fun for me personally.
I really like the finished product though. At this size, it’s really more a scarf than a shawl, but I’m totally okay with that. And yeah, it does want to curl quite a bit at the edges, but that’s part of why it drapes so nicely. I’m pleased with the relative lack of pooling and how the colors go with pretty much every bit of clothing I own, too!
