Acadian Shawl

This pattern, called the Acadian Shawl, can be found on Ravelry.

It's very easy lace knitting for the border.

It is made with Elann Incense yarn which is a worsted weight wool, silk, and bamboo blend. I was really hoping that yarn wouldn't shed because I wanted to wear this with my wool winter coat.

It sheds all over the place so that is disappointing. However, it will be a great little wrap this summer for cold, air conditioned restaurants and I won't have to worry too much about the shedding.

I don't really like wearing winter hats. But I wanted to use up some leftover Alpaca yarn AND try lace knitting one more time and hope for success.
This was quick and easy and gave me hope for future lace projects.
It's "Kensington" by Linda Wilgus and can be found on Ravelry.
So, now I have a nice, warm hat. Just in time for Spring!
