With the exception of basic knitted rectangles that I made several years ago, this is the first thing I've knitted.

I made it as part of an outfit for a poppet. It is from The Little Lady Shawl pattern on Ravelry.

I didn't have the size of needles it called for so I used 2 sizes up. I also didn't complete the pattern, because it would have been too large.

It looks great. You should use a needle a couple sizes larger than normal for the yarn when doing lace or shawls anyway. I've found going up 4 sizes looks good too.

That is so cute. It has two things that compliment each other: its daintiness (from the lace effect) does not overpower nor is overpowered by its size.
Well done!
