This is Stellaria after blocking. I really love this pattern! It's a pattern by Susanna IC which can be found on Ravelry.

We had an awful storm here a few days ago. This tree fell across the street from my house. It started Wednesday evening into Thursday.

We had no power for 66 hours! It was pretty awful. We spent a lot of time near our fireplace. The power is back but another storm is predicted for Tuesday. Not looking forward to that at all!

    1. Thank you, Em! Blocking changes the whole look of this shawl! This storm was awful and I had to work through the whole thing. Not looking forward to this next storm but at least I'm not working this time.
