Hello and update!

Hi there, I just joined last week, and here's my current progress pic:

I'm knitting the melon shawl, too, in Rowan Kidsilk Haze, colourway jelly. It's actually the yarn used in the book, I'm just using the 5 skeins I've got, knitting 9 instead of 7 repeats of the melon pattern in the middle.

This will be the first lace project I'm just knitting for myself, and I love both that pattern and the yarn. And oh, the colour.

It looks great so far! I'm making mine bigger, too, with 11 melons per row. It's a fun pattern to knit, isn't it?

Oh yeah, it is!
I have to admid, when I was looking through the book I was a bit intimidated, as it was only my 4th lace project and two of the others have not been that intricated at all - but I just jumped in, and after the first finished repeat I was like "uhm, so that's it? That's fun and easy!".
