First Lace Project

I've been meaning to share with everyone what I've been knitting lately. I've finally started a project that my sister-in-law suggested I try. It's a lace shawl that you can find here. I'm using Peach Pingouin “Andes” yarn which is composed of 40% wool, 30% alpaca, and 30% acrylic. The pictures don't show the color exactly but you'll get the idea. I'm really enjoying knitting this one. Except for when I sit down to watch an engaging show and then I find myself making a mistake. Unfortunately I don't notice the mistake until I'm about one to two rows away from it. So I have to backtrack and fix my mistake. But other than that I'm having fun with this one. I'd like to have it done by Easter but I'm not sure if I'll make it or not. I'm taking it with me to Springfield this next week. I'm taking Sam there for Spring Break. We're not going to do much which is just fine with me. Sam's bringing toys, I'm taking some projects and we're both bringing some books.

Forgot to add the fingerless gloves that I made. I found a decent and easy pattern for my first pair but I re-wrote it as I still didn't like it. I will make another pair as I need to re-do the thumb hole. Here's a picture of them!
