This shawl was finished towards the end of February and I've got to admit that I don't really like it. There's nothing particular that I can put my finger on, all the stitches are in place and I still love the yarn, I think it's just a residual dislike of the pattern. My problems with the pattern are probably unjustified and fulled by confusion. I usually find lace knitting to be a fairly organic process, one pattern moving into another creating a finished piece that flows.
For some reason I couldn't get into the groove with this shawl and I think a little part of that has to do with the transitions from one lace pattern to the next. Well maybe lack of transition would be a better way of putting it. Looking at the finished shawl the different patterns don't seem to relate well to one another and this made it really hard for me to read my knitting during those transitions. It's strange to find out how much your brain struggles when things don't fit an established pattern.
