Oh, Lilac. You make me swoon a little.

Pattern: Lilac Leaf Shawl by the genius Nancy Bush, from the inimitable Knitted Lace of Estonia
Yarn: 1.5 skeins (about 700 yards in total) of Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace
Needles: Size 6 US Addi Turbo Lace
Notes: I did an extra 2 leaves of the center pattern, since I had enough yarn. I'm hoping that the shawl doesn't completely engulf the recipient, because I will douse the yarn in hot sauce and eat it before I rip out the graft and do it over again. (No offense to the yarn and all offense to grafting, thankyouverymuch.)

This scarf is going to be for some female-bodied member of my homestay family in Japan this fall. I hope that they like it.

Now, for the man scarf!
