FO Rainbow Shawl

As promised, here is the finished triangular shawl. I know some people get bored with Stockinette quite easily, but I love it, and I don’t mind purl rows either, there is an eight row border of garter stitch at the bottom to prevent curling (not massively effective as of yet) but I haven’t blocked it yet as I don’t have enough room, and I still need to order a blocking mat.

All in all this is one of my favourite ever projects and I’m really proud of myself for sticking it out with almost 800m of lace-weight. Like I mentioned before, this yarn is super warm and fuzzy, but its hot out today, and the lofty nature of it doesn’t make it feel sweaty, plus it is not scratchy at all; merino doesn’t tend to be. I don’t think it’s going to fit into any of my planned costume endeavours, but I ‘needed’ a new shawl anyway, so this does very nicely.
