I'm taking a break from Christmas knitting (ha!) for another type of gift knitting. I've cast on the Lilah shawl by Heather Storta from the Spring/Summer 2011 Knitty. It's technically angel wings, but my friend is about to get her ornithology degree, so it's going to be bird wings for her, as a graduation/birthday present.
I'm using Malabrigo lace in the Polar Morn colorway, which is a lovely, pearly gray. I was only able to get two skeins at my LYS, and it theoretically calls for three, so we'll see how this goes. Fortunately, it's a widely available color.
