Finished


The marathon is over.

Today I finally finished this wrap which I spent every spare moment knitting, some while the girls had swim or dance lessons but mostly while relaxing in the evenings. It became a part of me in the end, never far from my side, but now it's FINISHED, DONE, FINITO.

I just went back into my blog archives to see when I actually started this and to my shock, it was just over a year ago in January 2011. My excuse for taking sooo long is that I did put it down for a few months while we were in transition with the house.

Still I am relieved it's over and I'm looking forward to starting a new project (one that's a bit smaller) with some lovely wool that 's been waiting patiently in the basket.



So now it's time to say farewell to my companion, as I intend to put it into my on-line shop, where I hope it will find love and be cared for, for many years to come.

It's gorgeous! What a huge project. I've just embarked on one. Not a wrap , but a blanket. The plan is to put it in a local shop close by. Just hoping the time and love that goes into it will be recognised .
