I Like THIS Moth!
I did warn John that it wasn't going to be all packing. I had every intention of running away to my knitting and that's just what I did. The Luna Moth Shawl is a joy to work on, now that I've got the chart figured out. I've completed Chart 1 and have completed two repeats of chart 2. I'm really, really liking this shawl. When done, it will be gorgeous!
When I bought this yarn, I wasn't really sure how much to purchase. Ann, who runs Kelowna Yarn & Needlecraft with her husband Stephen, suggested about 100 grams for a shawl, so that's what I bought. It wasn't cheap ($34ish), and I didn't know if I'd even like working with lace weight hemp, but I do. I can already tell that it will soften up with use. Lovely stuff!
