This was my very first 'real shawl'. It was daunting work because both sides , RS & WS, had "work to do". So if you make a mistake on the RS, such as forgetting a YO or what have you...it's impossible to detect on the WS, much less correct, because you're occupied with more 'work' on that row! The only 'clue' that "something ain't right" is when the stitch count between the markers were 'off' and you couldn't complete the assignment between them

I had to become paranoid at the end of each row, checking the work between each stitch marker before moving on to the other side. I think there were 27 stitch markers (repeats of 12 st each) across the row for the lacy bottom part. Oy vey.

So it wasn't until almost the end of the shawl that I began to automatically recognize the pattern stitch and enjoy the work. So all in all, this shawl was work. But I'm glad I did it for her!

First "real" shawl? Really?
