I finished it a few days ago, and I haven’t taken it off since!

The shawl is an asymmetrical construction, and the colours really shine.

I added some tassles with the tiny bit of left-over yarn I had, it was just serendipitous that they happened to match the endpoints perfectly.

    I am nomadic by nature & love color. This line of fiber so speaks to me; especially, the color Havana. My family is of Cuban decent. Since, the travel ban has been lifted I dream of being able to travel and put the stories my grandmother told me with the place. I had always hoped the she, my son & I could one travel there together.; however, that will never be; since, he passed away on April 12, 2013 at the age of 28. I had him cremated; so, now when I travel I still take him with me & spread his ashes.

    My favourite colourways of Wanderlust are Lake Louise and Kirosaki, but this yarn looks so deliciously scrummy that I am sure I will love all the colourways!

  30. I travelled a lot in my younger days as a student and never stopped longing to see more faraway places and daydream about traveling almost daily! Would love to visit India one day but since I have been living in Belgium for the past 15 years, most of my holidays take me to Prague to my family, whom I miss day and night. Prague also happens to be my favorite colorway. Your scarf in that color would make a perfect accessory for my next trip there. Thank you for all those lovely patterns.

    Love the scarf and the color is gorgeous. But my heart goes out to Paris, it’s not that far from my homeland Holland, but for me it’s at the other side of the world because it’s it not possible for me to travel due to my bad back I have to lay down most hours of the day. But I love to crochet 😀
