Leaf Lace Shawl

C'est fini!

This pattern is fairly straight forward and very easy to memorize. The only issue I had was when I changed from the main pattern to the edging. I frogged the edging 4 times before getting it right. I think that was due to the fact that I didn't need to think about the first section very much; the edging requires some thought for sure.

Overall, I am just delighted with this shawl - Thanks to TYL for suggesting this wonderful, yummy Blue Sky Alpaca silk yarn. It was a dream!

Pattern: Leaf Lace Shawl by Evelyn Clark
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca Silk in Garnet, 4 3/4 skeins, #5 needles
I received 3 skeins for Xmas and was fortunate to find 2 more of the same dye lot
Size: Small (I can't imagine how big the large is!)
Alterations: none
Time to finish: about 2 months of weekend knitting

Nicely done. As of yet I'm not a shawl chic. I'd love to be, but I have only found one shawl pattern that literally took my breath away. And once I finish one more big project it might just end up next on the needles.
