So the first finished object of 2015 is off the needles, with just a small amount to spare.
It was touch and go for a while but I got there!
The yarn is ton of wool – cormo which is crowdfunded wool from Tasmania, which was then dyed by yours truly.
It’s a gorgeous yarn to dye with and it knitted up beautifully.
The pattern is mostly made up. I wanted a garter stitch circular shawl and couldn’t find a pattern I liked. So I cast on a random amount of stitches, increased at each end and then every so often did a whole row of KF&B.
And then finished with a row of KF&B and then bound off.
I quite like the result. Unfortunately for you it was well past my bed time when I finished it and photographed it, but I was so worried I’d run out of yarn I knew I wouldn’t sleep well unless it was finished.
I was rather tired for work the next day. I believe this is what living life in the fast line is like.
So this is tired but pleased Bek, trying on a woolen shawl when it’s really very hot outside.

Gorgeous colorway. And, lovely patten too. 🙂
Don’t you love it when you can make up things yourself?
Ooo, love the colours!
You’re living life in the fast ‘n fibrous lane, Beks! 🙂 ♥ ❤
