I finished the Ashling shawl after many many many months. Well it felt like many months anyways. I originally thought the garter stitch portion of the shawl in the beginning would be repetitive and easy. However the increasing was placed in such a way that you had to pay attention on every single row. Also the wool was a super-wash wool and silk blend that made the stitches slippery. If you recall, I dropped some stitches two weeks ago and it was a nightmare fixing that little mistake.
