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.

It's gorgeous & the pattern shows up so well in the white yarn. This pattern is on my list too. Thanks for the inspiration.
