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.
