This shawl uses a pretty French lace, which reminded me of my high school French teacher who stubbornly wouldn't let me fail. She never accepted less than my best, and I am better for it. It's worked from the bottom up, using short rows, and the ruffle is added last.

I enjoy knitting mostly these days. I also love sewing, crocheting, baking, etc. I've gotten into designing knitting patterns, and that has bee all consuming, and pushed aside my other loves, which I hope to recover someday. I love to blog: I have 5 children. I've loved to craft for as long as I can remember, although I don't come from a crafty household. My mom found me "mentors" in our church to teach me to sew and crochet and whatever else I showed an interest in. I'm so grateful for that.
