I've been wanting to knit a lace shawl and I think I found just the pattern to try.
The Holden Shawlette by Mindy Wilkes is a free pattern download on Ravelry. You can find it Here.
I'm using size 6US circular needles and white Spring Song 100% Acrylic yarn from my stash. This yarn was purchased at least 25 years ago at Super Yarn Mart. It seems to be the right weight for this project so I'll use it to work out the pattern before I get some really nice luscious yarn.
