FO - Traveling Woman Shawl

Since my birthday is coming up, and I'll be Closer To Thirty, I decided to knit myself a shawl. Because, you know, old ladies wear shawls, so I thought it would be fitting.

Okay, not really.

But I've always wanted to knit a lace shawl, so I went for it. I started when we were headed home from California. I finished when we were headed home from Marble - it took every day of June (on the days I had time to knit, anyway) to finish.

It's the perfect size for tying around my waist to dress up a skirt or jeans, tying around my head as a kerchief, or wearing around my shoulders as a shawlette. I'm quite happy with the result.

The yarn is 100% alpaca laceweight, soft and lush as can be.

Pattern: Traveling Woman by Liz Abinante
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Alpaca Lace Paint
Needles: size 4 circular
