Better Late than Never

She's finally finished - six months in the making. I cast on 2 Jan and cast off 13 June. I'm not a particuarly fast knitter and most of the triangle shawls I've done have been three to six months duration.

I got the kit and I love this merino yarn! The colors are fanastic - not too high contrast, and the hand of the yarn is lush. I have about 33 grams left, which should be enough for a narrow scarf sometime in the future.

My favorite part was the border

The BEES with their complex shaping and the alternating triple decreases that made the 'flower stem' part so curvy! Pure genius, I tell you!

Beautiful bee! :) I'm waiting for my summer break to begin and then I plan to get started on the stole!

Very pretty bee! What yarn did you use?

I got the kit with the "Buckwheat Honey" colorway. The yarn is a hand dyed merino heavy lace/light fingering weight.
