This shawl was so easy and simple to knit that I'm not really sure what to say about it. Garter stitch that slips into beaded lace without any particularly tricky elements is relaxing to knit. I mentioned before that I wasn't going to put on the uncharted beads and I don't miss them. I think they would have been tedious as well as time consuming.
The one change that I made, other than the beading, was to leave off the last two rows. I wasn't at home and had begun to run out of beads on the second last beaded row. If I wanted to finish everything according to the pattern it would have meant sitting around without anything to do for a while. My compulsion to knit took over and I ended up casting off.
Celaeno is shaped like a crescent as opposed to the more common triangle. Despite the fact that the shawl only used one skein of yarn it ends up having long "wings" that will help hold it in place when worn. I blocked mine into the gentle curve that it fell into naturally.
