Irish Diamond Lace Shawl - finished

Mom's purple shawl is finished and ready to deliver to her. It was fun to knit, didn't use up nearly the amount of yarn I bought to make it, and feels warm but light when worn. (Project details here.)

Now on to the next project!

that is just BEAUTIFUL! would you say it's a hard pattern? I'm tempted, but I've never branched out beyond basic knitting.

What a beautiful shawl, Laura - and I love the colour, too. You're so clever.

Thank you, Margo and Caroline!

The pattern is easy and uses only a few stitches: knit; purl; yarn over; knit 2 together; slip, slip, knit; and slip one, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over.

None of those stitches/techniques are anything fancy, and the pattern is fun to watch as it emerges. And every other row is just a purl row.
