What better way to announce the start of spring but with a progress report on my beautiful lace shawl!!! I have completed 9 repeats of the 2nd chart, putting me at 44% complete based on 14 repeats of chart 2. I added a 2nd skein of yarn after 7 1/2 repeats (row 75). My first skein got me through about 11,800 stitches. I had started off using Clover Bamboo needles but found that the stitches were too "sticky" on the bamboo, so I switched to Suan Bates Silverado. The stitches are now sliding along quite nicely. This is another fun pattern and I find it easier than the Flower Basket Shawl, although that one was an easy knit as well.
