Lacy Crocheted Shawl

For my mother's birthday I decided to make her a lacy shawl. I have set some goals for myself this year with my crocheting, wanting to branch out from scarves and afghans. This was my first attempt at crocheting something lacy and I loved making it. I was a little worried when I first started because I started over probably ten different times. It finally took me turning off the tv, cranking up some Washed Out, and really concentrated on the pattern for me to get it...but I got it!

I found the pattern on Ravelry for free!

I am happy to say that my mom loved it!
