Surprisingly quick for a shawl-type project, and easy enough to follow to be able to knit in meetings. Absolutely positively needs some blocking (see comparison between the two photos!); I soaked then dried on a towel with just a bit of shaping. After that it lies quiet nicely. I don’t know if I’m going to keep it though, which is mostly about the yarn: somewhat on the scratchy side, and not the most flattering color for me personally.
