From time to time, I have the great blessing of being a part of something wonderful. Several of those times have involved being a part of my sister's design career. Haci designs lace shawls. Beautiful confections, every one, that I usually don't even attempt to knit -because they are very lacy. She can also be found here and here.

Often, my part involves helping her pick names for the patterns. Sometimes, she listens to my design suggestions and incorporates them into a lovely new shawl. And once in a while - when the pattern is fairly simple - I get to test knit them for her.

Tsidfy (The Shawl I Designed For You - pronounced sid-fee), her latest release, was a triple win for me. She used my desire for a simple shawl with that lovely lace border, a name we came up with together, AND let me test knit it. (It was quite a convenient coincidence that I needed a pattern for a friend's wedding gift.)

I highly recommend this pattern. It was a quick knit, not too complex, and enjoyable - even for those who knit lace only reluctantly.

Great job, sis! Thanks for always letting me be a part :D.

P.S.The pattern is FREE! It can be found here
