finally, after so many set-back, i finished the shawl for Ozaki-san at 4am, the morning we’re supposed to meet with her… and i was so tired for staying up late to knit, i woke up too late and ended up arriving late for the lunch at her house. d’oh!
anyways, this shawl has gone through a lot. originally, it was pink and white. but i didn’t buy enough yarn and the store seemed to have stopped the supply… so on the last minute, i had to changed to a different yarn… so, it’s now grey and turquoise. i prefer the first color, but oh well… and because i had to restart knitting it with the new yarn, i barely made it finished on the day of the meet up.
the pattern is called Diagonale, which i found at Ravelry. it’s free to download if you’re a Ravelry member. it’s a very pretty pattern and quite easy to follow. i memorized the pattern after a few rows, so it’s a good piece to work during commute.
i like the result, too. it’s very soft, bouncy and pretty. i think it fits the Japan weather. hopefully, Ozaki-san likes it.
