galaxy shawl

I dyed this yarn to look like a planet - orange is the planet and the dark blue is space.
I loved the way I dyed and balled the yarn :)

It took AGES to dye. First orange, then dry, then hand roll into a ball and dye blue, then unravel to dry, then splash on some extra blue because the orange was very harsh looking, then wind into a cake

then I waited a year or two to find the right pattern
I used this one I freaked out my hubby by showing him that I was crocheting from a chart with no written instructions :)

And here it is after its been blocked
