You're making great progress!

There's just something satisfying about long term projects...so many memories and life, it's like having a quiet, always there for your, never judgemental friend always there! :)

I took a break from the map and made myself finish this (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/evenstar-shawl) shawl that I had started a couple years back. It's taken me starting it, getting some portion through it, messing up, restarting it 3 times, and taking a solid year and a half break before finally finishing it. Since it's LOTR related, I'm posting pictures here.

The year and a half break happened because I got caught up in details with the border. The beads were pretty intimidating. The border actually only took 2 weeks to knit up.

I also just finished another page of the map today. I wanted to post it in the previous post, but I could only attach 5 pictures.

It says "The Lost Realm of Arnor." The detail isn't always so clear. And I hate stitching the mountains. So many close but not close enough confetti stitches.

The shawl looks fantastic! It looks pretty daunting but it's really paid off.

School has been keeping me busy, so not much stitching time. It was a rough semester and I'm surprised I survived! I have a month off school now and two weeks off work, which is leaving me with time to do whatever. I just finished page 5. I'm hoping to maybe get through page 6 before school starts again. One more semester!

I managed to get another page done before the semester started....ish. I finished it just after the semester started, so it counts, right? lol.

Hey, finishing in 5-6 years would be a dream for the giant Pokemon I'm working on now. On the optimistic idea of stitching 1 page a month, I'm looking at around 20 years to finish >.>
