Just off the needles.

Aleh Shawl:  2 sizes in 2 different yarns.

First is a little shawlette, more like a scarf or fichu.  Knit in Lyric yarn, which is this amazing singles fingering wt yarn.  Singles can be a pain to knit with, but not this one.  This one just knits up so easily.

Here it is in Lili Lace, which is a slightly heavier lace-weight yarn. Considerably skinnier than Lyric, but not as skinny as "regular" lace, and much easier to knit up.

I had so much fun doing these.  The border is a very easy leaf pattern, and the ground is a tiny leaf pattern, also.  A bit more work than garter or stockinette, but very much worth the extra effort.
