This is my first Finished Object of the year which is shameful but I'm no longer on Tramadol so my mind is now free to concentrate on my knitting.

I've loved this colourway for a long time and took a few weeks to find a pattern that did it justice. I wanted some lace but not enough that the pattern would be lost in busyness of the stripes. I think the garter stitch works perfectly with the rustic colours and texture of the yarn.

I knitted the largest size as I wanted a warm shawl to wrap myself up in & that's what I've got!
