That's "Shawl" She Wrote

I know, I'm very droll. Now that I have you roped in with my superior wit, I'll continue with this entry. Despite a relatively long absence, I am going be brief. I blended my thumb and it hurts to type.

The big news is that I finished my first bona fide lace-work project, the Aeolian Shawl from Elizabeth Freeman. I love how it turned out, a myriad of mistakes notwithstanding. My only regret is not discovering the Alternative Narrow Edging option, as that is the only part of the pattern that I didn't care for.


Kitten Approved!

A user on Ravelry, via project comments, basically informed me that my next lace-work project will be Elizabeth Freeman's Laminaria. Instead of being defensive, I thought it was as good a selection method as any for a knitting project.

I bought black Misti Alpaca from Webs and pink from a Ravelry user. Continuing the trend of taking orders on this project, tell me which you think I should use!

Beautiful shawl! I'm in awe.

I vote for pink if only because I hear black can be hard to work with. I suspect that black would make lace knitting particularly challenging.

However, a finished black piece could work with anything, and you're not afraid of a challenge...
