My Ashton Shawlette remains one of my favorite finished objects. I knit this in 2012 and it was the first lace shawl I completed. However, it was not the first lace shawl I started. I started two prior to this one - Icarus which I never finished and my Alix's Prayer Shawl which I did finish later in 2012. Obviously for me the third time was a charm. The pattern was very easy for a beginning lace knitter and the yarn - Ella Rae Lace Merino - was super yummy. I still wear this shawl all the time and love it.
