Not a Lace Flunky Anymore!




I can't KNIT lace but I sure can CROCHET it.  
=)  =) =) =)



I used a hank of hand dyed sock yarn from my stash.
The color is such a lovely green ... like a forest canopy with sunlight filtering through softly.
Or it looks like an over-fertilized yard!!



The pattern is from Ravelry (free of course!)
Slightly modified as I ran out of yarn for the border (doesn't that always happen!)

I love this shawl and have already made one for Abigail's teacher.  =)
If you have a favorite shawl pattern, please share it with me in a comment!

Love ... Erin =)

Knitted lace is giving me fits lately. I think crocheted lace is gorgeous (it may be my favorite thing to crochet). Love your version of the shawl. I haven't made many shawls, but the South Bay is my favorite. I also like this one: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chanson-en-crochet

Very, very pretty - great work. :)

My favorite pattern for a shawl is the triangle granny.
