Some people make dozens of quilt tops and fold them carefully into drawers. I make triangular shawls and tuck them safely away and forget to wear them.
My latest finish is The Lonely Tree Shawl by Sylvia Bo Bilvia, and the pattern is a free download available at Ravelry. I used Knitpicks Telemark instead of the worsted weight yarn that the pattern calls for, so mine is a bit smaller than the designer intended. In hindsight, I probably had enough yarn to do another repeat of the leaf lace, but I was afraid of running out.
I've made leaf lace shawls before, but this is the first time I've done a garter stitch edging with a picot bind-off. I really like the way it looks.
Remember all of the trouble I had remembering how to knit triangular lace shawls? I should have started with this pattern. It explains exactly how to follow the charts and when to knit what.
