I love knitting lace. It's not exactly relaxing but the results are so beautiful. This shawl was one that was really fun to do. I did run out of yarn at one point and so it took a while to finish as I had started other projects since I had to order more yarn.
The yarn is a wool with some silk in it. It is very soft.
The pattern is one I bought online. It is called the Holbrook Shawl by Dee O'Keefe.
