Knitted Lace Civil War Shawl
One of the things that I love to do is knit, particularly knit lace. This shawl was a Knit-A-Long several years ago from a lady that called it the Civil War Shawl. She said it was not from the Civil War but that she was knitting it for a friend who was a living historian of the Civil War. This was a lot of fun to knit. I love knit-a-longs because many people are knitting the same thing you are and you have lots of advice and tips from the experts in the field of knitting.
