The sunset shawl

I finally finished something. It's been a slow knitting year so far. But I'm back (I hope).
It was fun to knit. It started as an assymetrical design (decreasing at one side), but I added a border.

In hindsight I should have done a few things differently. Because I didn't know I wanted a border at first, I did a small border at the side where I later picked up stitches. That transition doesn't look too smooth, but I didn't want to start all over.
Also, one side is rolling a bit, but I don't have a place to block it (yet). But then again, I love the colors and it's perfectly functional to wear on chilly evenings or mornings.

Don't laugh. We do have them. When your days have temperatures around 90 F, (or even higher sometimes) evenings and early mornings that are 'only' 77 F actually feel chilly, especially with the sea breeze.

I'm so happy to be knitting again!
