Holden.

As some of you guessed from my last post, I knit the Holden shawlette.  This was my first shawl, and my first true lacework.  It was so so fun!  It was an intriguing knit for me, I couldn't put it down.

I decided to buy blocking mats and lace wires after knitting this.  It made such a difference in the shawl.  All of the lacework opened up so nicely, and it lays nice and flat now.  I think it was a good investment.

This will be a Christmas gift for my mom.  Her favorite color is aqua blue (just like me!) and I think she will love it.  All of the details are over here on my Ravelry page.

    thanks so much for coming by my blog during the "leafs" hop. Homemade pumpkin ice cream sounds yummy. I have made an ice cream pumpkin pie before that is really good. good luck in my giveaway.
