This shawl has kinda been more than a year in making. I got the yarn about a year ago, but had so many other projects, I waited until about a month ago to actually start it. After I had about sixty rows done, working side to side, I was ready to put in the second arm hole. It was then that I found I had read the pattern wrong at the beginning. I had to frog it all. Finally, when working on it during a weekend at a hotel, I put half the yarn I wasn't ready to use yet in a dresser drawer. After I got home, I realized I had left it at the hotel. I was lucky that housekeeping found the yarn, and sent it back to me by express delivery. I think the person from the hotel must create with yarn also, since they seemed to understand how quickly I wanted it back. :) I was happy to have it finished to wear this weekend. It was warm outside, but the breeze that was blowing made me glad I had it.
