Last one for the day, I promise. This is the Nightfall Multnomah (Ravelry link). The yarn was a gift in the All Things Local Swap from May of 2010. I knew the minute I saw the yarn that it wanted to be a shawl and when I saw the pattern I was certain that they were perfect for each other.
I won't go into much detail here, but I didn't like this pattern. There were some math errors that forced me to do WAY to much thinking and I was still in need of mindless knitting. This was the last piece that I was able to work on before I put Eraser down. My stress level was really high from the decision process and the ache that it caused and I could never find the strength to pick up the sticks and string. I did pick up the crochet hook but that is another post all in itself.
