Summer Lily Shawl

My nieces continue to be fascinated by knitting - last time I was there, Amelia helped put beads on for the lace shawl I was working on then. They were also intrigued by the idea of Shawls, though it was kind of hard for them to try it on while it was on the needles. Amelia then declared that she thought I should make a shawl for Isabelle, who is into Princesses. So I did. This is also a nice experiment with this color changing yarn - I don't do a lot with cotton, but it worked out well, and a four-year-old probably doesn't need silk lace. :)
