I did it ! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

And it looks just awesome !

I finally get to knit my very first shawl and really really love it !

About 2 weeks ago, I told you about it, when group of French knitters launched the Nurmilintu KAL.

It took me 12 days to knit that Nurmilintu shawl (and I havn’t knit everyday), and I just love it !

I’ve decided to choose 2 differents shades of grey from Cascade Yarn (“Sunseeker”), and I’m glad I did because my 2 skeins were used for it.

So how about that Nurmilintu knitting ? It was lovely, and quite easy until the lace part… I definitely recommend you to use stitch markers and focus on your knitting (I’ve discovered I cannot to this if very stressed by something else too : all I’ll get done is a mess, and then will have to unknit this and redo it all over again 😉 )
