Thanks Contiknitter...I certainly don't want to run short! I have to say that I am really sold on Lifelines...being a new knitter, I have made a ton of mistakes and fortunately did not have to frog all the way back...due to the lifelines! Since you seem to be the furthest along on this shawl, are you running into any of the problems with the pattern that other people have been? From what I've read from your posts, you are not finding mistakes in the pattern, right? I just want to make sure that it's right before I start it! LOL!
