I test knit a shawl for a friend. It is designed to use one skein of Noro or colorful sock yarn, but I did it in some barely colored handspun that has been marinating in the stash for some time. The pattern is available on Ravelry here.
It is a very easy knit, perfect for the beginning lace knitter. It is a shawlette that sits nicely on the shoulders due to the shaping. I made it a bit bigger, as I wanted more coverage, and had the yarn available.
These photos were the best I could do, as it has been very windy here. Spring on the prairie, you know.
