Trillian update

So I just realized that I first wrote about Trillian in August  of 2014! I've been knitting on this thing pretty regularly for the entire year and I am still not finished. I'm pretty darn close but it will probably be a while before it's complete, since I still have a second Ellafunt to finish first.

But I thought that it deserved an update!

It started as this stunning skein of lace weight Indigo Dragonfly Merino Lace Single in the color Beige

I cast on in August of 2014 and had to reknit this tiny triangle 2 or 3 times before I got the super simple pattern correct! 

I've taken it with me to soccer practice, games, Dr's appointments and other random places over the year and it is quite a decent size already. This was it two weeks ago. 

I could probably start the edging at any time now, but I don't want to be left with any of this amazing yarn. I keep weighing the ball to try to get to around 10% of the skein left so I can do the edging.. we will see if that works or not.  I think this super drapey and lightweight shawl will actually be perfect for summer evenings on the coast of Maine, so I'd like to finish it before my vacation hits. Wish me luck.
