Sivia Harding's Harbour Lights shawl is such a delight to knit. The pattern is clear and easy to follow. Placing the beads with the crochet hook is simple, especially for a left-hander. And the finished product is gorgeous!
Luckily I'm a process knitter, so didn't mind too much giving this away to a good friend for her 40th birthday (of course, I had to try it out first).
Oh, and the Malabrigo sock yarn? To die for!
