This shawl was one of the most pleasurable projects I’ve knit to date. I felt really sad when I was on the last four rounds. Ever get attached to a project?
Music: I knit the bulk of this shawl listening to Rachmaninov by Lang Lang. I’m a mad knitter.

Lovely! Birch is one of my favorites, too. I wear mine a lot. Yours is a beauty. Rachmaninov? Might have to try that!

Oh! It’s beautiful! I am so impressed. I’m working on a similar project right now- lace wrap for my mother’s birthday. I hope it turns out as lovely as yours.

Isn’t it wonderful — in a bittersweet kind of way — when you have a book or knitting project that you’re sad to finish. Consider yourself lucky! Your Birch turned out beautifully.
