Myrtle leaf finished

Sweden speaking! Wet, wet and very warm for a winter, 11 C . My shawl is finished, I really like it, the yarn is soft and blocked well. I used 4 mm needles and made 38 repeats instead of 40. The border was easy to knit, and it only took a couple of days. I already started the Spider web shawl, decided to knit a half hexagon. Yarn Evilla lace 8/1 in green/yellowish green. It's easy at least in the beginning. My daughter is modeling.

The shawl is beautiful (as is you daughter). It's nice to hear it knits quickly. Myrtle is my choosen project from the book. Did you find any glaring errors?

Thanks all of you! There is an error i row 13 in centerpanel, the first stitch is a K2tog and I want to have that in the end of the row instead. Maybe I'm wrong?

You must be so pleased to have such a beautiful shawl to wear. If I were your daughter I might not give it back!!

I noticed that same mistake in row 13. I checked about 5 times before I believed myself, but yes, I started the row with a single knit stitch and finished with a k2tog at the end of the row.

I checked the publisher's website and they don't have errata online... looks like they should!
