My First Lace Shawl and Naptime



I happily finished my Falling Leaves Shawl. This was a great pattern for a first lace project. I used Lush, a wool/angora blend. I think it turned out pretty, and it will be warm, too. I look forward to wearing it. For the purpose of actually blocking it, I invested in some T-pins. Right now, the “blocking board” is the chaise in our bedroom. The tough part will be keeping the cats off of it.

Now, it is naptime at our house. Amelia has company! I am going to work on the scrap-scarf I decided to crochet. It’s a funky way to use of leftovers (yarn, that is).

I also ordered a few things for my Scavenger Hunt Swap partner. I think she’ll like them. I’ve been trying to guess who will be sending to me…..

Your shawl is gorgeous! It is going to feel so good on – wool/angora blend. Yum.

Your cats look like large gaurds for Amelia.
Hope she had a good nap.

Oh, it’s so beautiful! I’m nowhere near that level, yet. I wonder how long it took to make? Glad you posted the photo, it’s nice to see the close up detail in the knitting.
