This week, I finally finished my Provence shawl, of many previous posts fame.

I screwed up… Continue reading Aaauuugggghhh!!!
So I have been knitting on this shawl, which if you have read any previous posts you have probably already seen, for what seems like forever. But is really since mid-April, which is long enough.
