flukra

It's been a long time coming that I finally got around to taking and sharing pictures of my finished Flukra. I cast on this gorgeous shawl back in September (ahem!) with The Shetland Trader group on Rav. Gudrun Johnston is one of my most favorite knitwear designers and when I saw her KAL for the (back then) new Flukra shawl, I knew I had to jump in. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way (probably around Thanksgiving or Christmas) I lost steam and set the project aside. After my food coma from the holidays dissipated, I managed to finish the project up in February! I'm so glad I did, because this shawl is amazing! The beauty got a nice soaking and blocking this weekend, so here she is in all of her charm and elegance…
