A while ago I finished my Lucca Shawl but I never shared it on the Yarn Along. I was hoping to get a few pictures of me wearing it with Treasure & Lily the two alpacas who's fleeces I used to make this pi shawl. But that hasn't happened yet.
This is a Brooklyn Tweed pattern and I really enjoyed every second of knitting it. It knitted up very quickly. I made it using heavier weight yarn than the pattern called for but I wanted to use it as blanket. Since it has been finished it has been living at my spot on our brown leather couch draped over the back. I love getting to see it shown off in our Family Room everyday. I love that the yarn is from of two of my most favorite alpacas!
I think what helped me knit it so quickly was that I listened to "The Martian" while I was working on it. I really LOVED the book. My husband also listened to the book. I would tell my kids (ages 8 & 6) about things that happened in the book and they loved hearing about it. Finally after we had both finished listening to the book we all watched the movie together as a family and we all really enjoyed it.
