Yeah, it took me a long time to knit this. I started it on my trip to Asia in early 2009, but it languished for ages after I got back. I would pick it up and work on it furiously for a few days, then set it aside again for months. The pattern is very well written and easy to follow, but it’s still hard for me sometimes to find time to knit something that isn’t work and especially something with so many charts!
I’m really happy with it. I think it’s one of the prettiest things I’ve ever knit.
