Vacation knitting

After a lovely week on Lanzarote celebrating my mothers 50th birthday I found myself finishing up a Luna Moth shawl for my daughter. I found the knitting rather annoying at times, being unable to really see the pattern in the shawl. But after blocking... Wow! I really love it and my daughter maybe more since this is the first time I have knitted her a shawl of her own. About time I`m sure.

I used 2 balls of Drops alpakka for the shawl, app 360 meters. When finished I had 4,5 meters left of the yarn. Close call. The shawl is rather small, only about 130 cm across the longest side, but it?s perfect for my nine year old.
