The first finished object of 2010 is now bound off! I just finished a Clothilde Shawl. It’s both my first shawl and my first lace project – and I would have to say, it’s wonderfully well-written pattern! It’s fairly simple without being boring, and the pattern is both written and charted (so you can pick the method that works best for you). It was a nice quick knit, as well! I haven’t yet blocked but I’ll be posting before and after shots – I think it will be a great transformation.
