What was your inspiration? This was my very first lace shawl - it will most likely be a favorite - just because it was my first. When I ordered the yarn, I wasn't sure what the color would be like knitted up, but I fell in love with the great earth tones. This was a fun course. I have already made my Clarus, and look forward to knitting many more lace projects. Thanks, Laura - you are a great instructor and have really inspired me.
