Yeah, I know I just said I don't understand the whole shawl thing, and here I go, knitting another one.
I cast on for this shawl during the hemlock ring rage on Ravelry. I do like it. I just HATED the bind-off. Really. Hated it. It took me months to do it as I just lost interest every time I started working it.
I still need to block it - I've never blocked lace so this will be a new thing for me. I'll post a photo after I have washed/blocked it.
