Things I love to make: August 2010. In Nancy Bush's book ”Knitted laces of Estonia” there are many beautiful patterns of knitted lace shawl where the main motif is from the nature. The most common motifs are the lily of the valley and various types of leaf and twigs. One of my favourites is this triangular shawl where the main motif is a birch leaf. The shawl is very easy and fast to knit.
