Shoulder Shawl in Syrian Pattern

Just can't knit fast enough. So many lovely shawls, so little time. While my Melon Shawl was drying in it's blocking pins, I cast on for this:

The yarn is Rowan Kidsilk Night in color #614, AKA Macbeth. I'll knit this one larger than the pattern states. A 57 inch wingspan just isn't enough for a tall person like myself. Also, I'll be using the wide point lace edging that Ms. Sowerby suggests on page 183 as an alternative for this shawl.

This is just too much fun!
