In October 2012 I went to New Zealand for my uncle's funeral. It's a reasonably long flight from here at 15 hours, and I figured I needed an easy project to knit, that I could pick up and drop without losing my place. The Revontulli pattern was ideal, and also used up some yarn in my stash that needed a simple enough lace pattern to not overpower the yarn.
Yarn: Kauni Wool 8/2 Effektgarn in colour EV, one complete skein
Needles: 5.5 mm
Pattern: Revontuli-huivi/Northern Lights
Modifications: I had to rip back the last two rows to have sufficient yarn to bind off.
