First real attempt at Lace


shawl 3 3 size 6

This is going to be my first shawl made out of laceweight yarn. It is a KAL in the Beginning Lace group on Ravelry. The pattern is called Blue Jeans Lace Leaf Shawl
I have had to start over a few times because I was having a small problem with the stitch count. When I finally got going I realized that it seemed awfully small compared to others. I was using a size 4 needle. I frogged it and moved up to a size 6. I like it a lot better.
I'm having a lot of fun with this pattern and with lace. The yarn is Malabrigo lace. I can't wait to finish it!
