I'm thinking about knitting a little lace something for Kate. She's not a shawl kind of girl, and really, that works out perfectly, because there's no way in hell I'm knitting my first lace shawl in under 2 months. I can barely finish a sock right now with the way life's been lately. (Let's ignore the Vintage Knits project, the Hourglass Sweater, and the jaywalkers for now. My best friend since childhood only gets married once.)(We hope.)
Instead of the shawl I was thinking something more along the lines of a nice lace handkerchief (what a weird word), that she can fold up, keep with her during the ceremony, and tuck into a little box of memories. It's probably what she'd do with a shawl anyway, and the chance she have anything to fold and tuck away at all is inversely proportional to the size of the project I choose.
I've never knit lace before, and a perusal of the Barnes and Noble downstairs has yielded nothing of interest.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for a small lace project? Good books, good internet sites, maybe a great pattern you've knit before?
