So on Tuesday I went on ravelry to find a pattern for a small shawl that I could drape around my neck for a bit of colour without too much bulk. It took a while, but I finally remembered that I own Knitting Lace Triangles by Evelyn Clark, and have been itching to knit something from it. So I chose a simple shawl with a single lace pattern (leaf lace) and went to work.
|Here it is last Tuesday evening, after the first chart was knit.|

And here it is again, this afternoon, after its bath and neatly pinned into its finished dimensions. It stretched out to about 48" across and 24" tall.
