Gypsy is a Koigu pattern. I really am enjoying the shawl now that it is finished, but there was a lot of frustration during the knitting phase. The instructions are *vague* because there are SEVERAL errors. The chart is, well, a nightmare! I don't mean to bag on a company's pattern, but please! While this should be an easy lace shawl pattern and great for a first project, I do not recommend it until you have done several lace projects and are prepared to wing it a lot along the way.

I actually used lightweight Socks that Rock (http://www.bluemoonfiberarts.com/) yarn in Crazy Lace Agate colorway (I don't see that colorway on their website...). All of their colors are gorgeous and the yarn is a dream to knit.

Thank you for looking at my recent accomplishment and for your praises. There are many awesome lace projects out there, even for beginners. PM me if you want some suggestions! :hug:
