summer lace shawl pattern for mothers day

Finally – it’s finished. Mother’s Day lace shawl is done. With exceptions I think.

My inspiration for this delicate shawl was overgrown rockery next to my apartment house (which is not so delicate). Each spring this rockery is buried under the Lily of the Valley and I absolutely adore it. This means that spring is officially here.

I wanted to reflect the nature of this flower – tenderness, hope and promise of new beginnings. And remember the smell? Too bad I can’t put the fragrant of this blossom in my knitting.

I’m hesitant though – I feel that the knitted edge of the shawl is…. I’d say… boring. And plain. Just blah.

What do you think? I thought that maybe I should put some flowers for border? Or is it exaggerating with pattern?

By the way, if you have finished knitting your shawl then check out the gift box tutorial too. Or maybe you’re ready to start new shawl? “Shawl of Solitaire” for you?
