It took me two tries to start this shawl. I found the beginning rather complicated because there are many motifs all at once. But past the first third of the knitting, it was smooth sailing. I still used lifelines up until the last chart. Usually I scorn them, but I had no desire to start this project a third time.
My photographer was Alex, who is 11 years old.
This shawl will be a Mother's Day gift to my mother. She has one worsted weight shawl from me, but has pined for a laceweight shawl. She might expect one for a Christmas present, but I think she'll be totally surprised to get this for Mother's Day. I'm looking forward to it.
