FO: Hitchhiker.

A simple garter stitch shawl, and yet as of the moment I'm typing this, there are 5661 Hitchhiker projects on Ravelry. After knitting it myself, I see why.  It's strangely addicting and simple enough that you don't have to look at the pattern for almost all of it.

It took me almost an entire month to finish this (May 1 - May 30), but really it could have been a much quicker knit if I didn't work on a million things at once. I quite enjoy this little shawl, and I've already cast on the designer's Trillian pattern, which is really quite similar, using my Gynx Sock in Totoro #2. It's looking awesome. 

Pattern: Hitchhiker by Martina Behm
Yarn: Western Sky Knits Aspen w/ Nylon in the colorway Fire Burst
