  1. It's a really nice shawl. I bought it a month ago with Celes scarf but I have not started yet. I have to admit that I'm pretty reluctant to do it... I think it's going to be really difficult. What do you think?

  2. The beginning (edging) is by far the most difficult part...and honestly it's not so bad once you get into it. It's just a bit of a slog, then the rest of it flies. Casting on a few stitches to start and working the hard part first means that there's no harm in giving it a try, right? If you find it too fiddly or that it requires a ton of concentration you can still knock out a full repeat in a few minutes' time. I would just recommend checking your work often, because fixing "no rest rows" lace is no fun.
