A friend of mine is going through a rough patch personally, so I thought I would make her a prayer shawl. I debated about doing something simple and fast in order to get it to her quickly. Then I remember my Knitted Lace of Estonia book. I paged through it, loving each item. I kept going back to one pattern and decided that is what Liz needed. A delicate simple rectangular shawl. My stash provided the yarn necessary and so after a week this is what I have.
And I love it. It is not without a few mistakes but don't we all have some glitches in our lives? I'm hoping it will be finished in a couple weeks. And I hope Liz can feel the comfort when it is wrapped around her shoulders.
As far as whether I'm dipping my toes in the shallow end or going headlong into the deep end of the lace pool? I guess we will judge that later in the year. I do have some suri baby alpaca to spin...laceweight should be easily achieved with that....spinning? lace? spinning lace? sounds like heaven to me.
