Lace!

I'd had my eye on this gorgeous Icelandic shawl for a while. I almost choked when I saw that the book costs $45, but I had to have it!

Of course, it took a while to find the right yarn for this design... I finally settled on Habu's super shiny, super slippery 100% silk.

It's easy to knit with it, once you have filed your nails are completely snag free. Hey, at least I took good care of my nails while knitting this shawl!

The pattern is completely charted out, which really helps visualize what you're about to do. Still, I messed up a couple of times and had to tink back occasionally. But, as with all lace knitting, you eventually find a groove :)
