My first lace knit! Frustrating as you can imaging when you get so far and you realize you have dropped stitch or not yarn over when you should have. The pattern was intuitive and I would definitely try another one, but make it bigger.

Wow to both your projects! How did your sweater end up fitting? It looks great.

And what's the deal with the shawl? It's beautiful -- are you saying you made a mistake someplace? I definitely can't tell.

Great job on both.

Lovely knits and with new york temps still in the high 40s the hooded sweater would be perfect.

Happy Mothers Day.
