Unnecessary and probably stupid

Because we’re moving house.

Because I’m surrounded by boxes.

Because the stash is packed and I kept out one skein of laceweight.

Because it’s been in the stash for ages.

Because when I’m surrounded by chaos, if I have to knit then knitting something solid and dependable and simple and reassuring should surely be the order of the day, but bugger that, frankly.

Because the sampler shawl from Victorian Lace Today is so pretty.

Especially when it’s in Violet Green’s laceweight 2ply in colourway Peonies.
