My second lace shawl looks less like a shawl and more like a piece of art. It's asymmetrical, a mix of neutral and bright colors, a contrast between lace and geometric shapes.
As I was taking pictures, an idea struck me. I hung the shawl on the brick wall using a single nail. It clung to the wall as it if decided it wanted to be a piece of art instead of clothing. So I'm leaving it up on the wall for a while.
