Christmas knitting got away from me, as always, so I still haven't been able to send some things. But the recipients aren't expecting them and they don't
It's a shawl! It took a month! Ooooh, aaaaah:
|Bananaboat [Rav] by Sue Berg; knit with 2-ish skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Lace in colorway Port|
This pattern is free! on Ravelry, vaguely translated from German. I went up a needle size (no long-length circs in size US5 at my house), so I only did 3.5 of the 4 total repeats of the lace chart (for yarn usage reasons, rather than size).
I named the project "Lannis Port" for Game of Thrones reasons; it seemed clever in my brain at the time... using yarn in the Port colorway + fancy like royalty + I had just finished A Feast for Crows (AKA Book 4). Cersei wishes she had this shawl!
