Citron Shawl

Citron Shawl

While not technically lace, this delightful little shawlette was just the simple something I needed to knit during our first week on vacation--on the plane, in the airport and lounging on our private deck in Monteverde with a glass of champagne. (Not only was our trip a Much-Needed Mental Health Break, it stood in for The Honeymoon We Never Took and our recent [August 28th] Five Year Anniversary Celebration).

Love it. Super simple, which was the goal, both in the knitting and in the finished result. With a super-cute accessory like this, it'd be hard not to be fashionable.
