On the 4th of june I started my Kyrrð, a design by Johanna Bibbins (Knittingmydayaway) and this monday, 10.th of oct. I finished!! It took me so long, because most of the time I had it "on the side" and was knitting many other things at the same time - like 4 laceshawls (Aeolian, Hyrna Herborgar and 2 vinkonusjal), an icelandic sweater, a lot of hats...
I learned a lot of new things making Kyrrð. The most exciting thing was the "8-cast-on" (or magic cast-on) which is really fascinating... it was one of those wow-moments ;-) The only problem was, that because I didn´t have any practice with the magic 8-cast-on, I had to start the project 2 times and frog it once... but I didn´t give up since I really wanted this beautiful shawl! The pattern is really well written and not hard to understand if you know this cast-on method, the lace-patterns are in such a perfect harmony and it looks so elegant! I might be tempted to make myself another one, using my own handdyed yarn... and I once again must admit: lace-knitting is addicting, so thing twice before you even start!
