Phoenix Rising Shawl II

The Year of Lace kit came with 1 skein of Claudia's Handpaints Silk Lace (100% silk, 1,100 yards), a packet of beads, and the pattern for Sivia Harding's custom design. The pattern charts are nice and large and the directions clear, even if, like me, you've never knit a triangular shawl from a chart before. Seven color photos - mostly close-ups of details - illustrate the directions.

This is one-and-a-quarter repeats (out of five total for the full shawl). The body pattern is 32 rows but it wasn't until row 20-something that I saw the logic of the pattern, I admit.
