Carolyn's Shawl with No. 20 Edging

Hello, everyone! I'm working on my second project from VLT, the Shawl with No. 20 Edging. I'm using Elann's Super Kydd laceweight in Pomegranate on size 7 US needles. I've got six repeats of the edging to go, and not much left in the second ball ... so it's a good thing I ordered three.

I like the yarn. It doesn't run anywhere if I drop a stitch, but I do find it to be wonderfully possessed of static electricity, and wonder if that's a characteristic of KidSilkHaze in dry winter weather as well.

Your shawl looks beautiful! I knitted my daughter the River Shawl from the Rowan mag last year with KSH and enjoyed working with this yarn. A lot of people complain that it's hard to frog. I had to frog it a couple of times and didn't have too much trouble. I didn't get any static electricity but then we don't have the cold winters you do over there.
