Aestlight Shawl

This is one of my unfinished projects, the Aestlight Shawl, it has been just over a year since I have picked up this particular project, I loved knitting it up until this point and then I can’t actually remember why, but I stopped and left it neatly folded in one of my knitting baskets, forgotten… This week, as I walked through my wool room, I noticed it, patiently lying there waiting for me to finally finish it. I took it out of the basket and started to knit the lace section, it has had my complete focus and attention the entire morning. It’s a beautiful pattern and available on Ravelry for download! Do you find there are some projects that you leave unfinished for months… years even…and then you return to them and finish them without batting an eye?? I think this is going to be one of them:) I have always wanted to knit a shawl and I am loving the process now, a year later…
I am knitting the shawl in Nurturing Fibres, hand dyed sock wool, called Agapanthus.

    That is looking to be a beautiful shawl, I think its amazing how projects can be left untouched and then picked back up again without the bat of an eyelid 🙂

    It’s a really pretty project made from great yarn so I think it’ll be a terrific one for you to finish up! I don’t usually like having loose end projects around but it does happen sometimes.

    I really like the way the stripes in the center and the striped border work together.

    Oh I love it!
    So beautiful. I am completely in love with those colours too.
    I am absolutely guilty of starting a project and eventually completing it, a looong time later. I blame it on all of the wonderful inspiration there is around me. I always want to try something new and there’s only so much time in a day!

    Those colours are lovely and the shawl is so pretty. I know exactly what you mean, I have been knitting a shawl for about a year….I think the closer it gets to being finished means that each row takes ages to do so progress seems to crawl and I don’t get the instant gratification that i do from my smaller projects. I will finish it before next winter 😉

    I love the colors of your shawl. I’ve just finished knitting the Aestlight shawl too! It took me a year to knit mine, mainly because we had an international move as well as having to order more yarn for it from South Africa. I found the lace edging quick to knit and quite addictive!

    Good luck! Look forward to seeing it finished.

    How wonderful of it to wait so patiently! And such a beauty. Yes, I think I’d finish her too…

    Blessings, Debbie
