My new shawl

This shawl was very fun to do.  Probably because I am really enjoying lace projects.  This was the project I decided to take this summer on my trip to Europe.  I uses a lace yarn, so it doesn't take up much room in the suitcase.

 It started at the center of the straight edge with only about 6 or 8 stitches and grows with every row.

 At one point the rows were so large that it took all evening to get only 2 or 3 rows done.

 I love the design.  I used an alpaca, silk blend yarn called elderberry.
I grew up with elderberry bushes.  We used to make pies from them.

From August to December?  Well, I did put it aside at one point to work on other projects.

 My Ravelry link.

We woke up to snow  this morning.  Eloise knows what to do with it.  Make snowballs and throw them.
It was fun to watch her.
