Melon progress


I got tons done on my melon shawl over the weekend. I'm amazed at how quickly the edging is gone. And very pleased. I do have to warn you, though, if you knit this will Kidsilk Haze, as the pattern suggests, you will definitely need 4 balls of yarn, not the 3 the pattern calls for.

As usual, more photos are in my blog. Also, my cat had an intersting reaction to seeing the shawl on the couch in the bright morning fog light.

Oh it is beautiful. Thanks for the tip re KSH
Funny enough I bought 3 balls in black KSH for it but changed my mind as am going to use it for another shawl; hope there is enough for that one!!

The melon pattern in my edition suggests to look at the illustration for the melon st, but I can't find the illustration anywhere in the book.
I figured out how to decrease the stitches, but how do I get the number of stitches back to continue and the pattern to look good?
