It hasn't been a mystery to anyone for a while, now, but it was when I started back in March of last year -- Romi's first Mystery Shawl!
I was certain, about a month ago, that I still had this project as a WIP -- with just a few border repeats left to go -- and was ready to make it an FO*. Imagine my surprise when I finally located it and found it completely finished -- ends woven in and everything! It needed only to be blocked!
Well, it sat around for a while again, but I needed to "accomplish something" last Sunday, so I gave it a soak and pinned it out.
- Project: Cactus Flower (Romi's Mysterious Shawl KAL) by Rosemary Hill
- Yarn: The decadent and discontinued Make.Do Invoke Sport (70/20/10 Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere)
- Needle: US 5
- Start to Finish: March 20, 2013 - August 17, 2014
It's big, gorgeous, and so very soft. I'll get a modeled shot soon...
One of my favorite models is winging her way home from Edinburgh! She is in Detroit, as we speak, waiting to board for the last leg. So excited for her to finally meet & squeeze the Junebug!!
*I made Ysolda's Follow Your Arrow Mystery Shawl an FO, instead! As is apparently my M.O. of late, it needs only to be blocked... stay tuned.
