New Design: Lemon Drops Shawl.
A month ago I came across a pattern that I really loved. It looked a little bit like a leaf, but had some interesting twist to it. I knew I wanted a shawl with this pattern right away. I had to change the lace pattern somewhat to make it fit into format of a shawl. As I started to knit the shawl I had no idea what to do for the border, but it kind of came to me at the end :-)) It was a truly spontaneous project and a fast one too. I knitted the shawl in a week :-))) The shawl was named "Lemon Drops" because the color of the yarn and the shape of the main pattern reminded me of that particular candy :-))) I love, love, love how it all came to together. I hope you like the shawl too :-)) I am writing the pattern for the shawl right now.
