I just started on the flower petal shawl from elann. It's really great! The lace pattern is easily memorized and to keep track of wear you are. I wanted to knit something lacy but I didn't want to constantly be checking a chart and getting all tense worrying about making mistakes. If you decide to do that one, though, be forewarned that almost everyone who has made one wishes it was wider. I cast on 6 stitches instead of 4, and am repeating each pattern repeat 6 times instead of 4.

Quick thread hijack:

Oooo...I totally want to try this pattern.  What yarn are you using?  And can you post a picture?  Thanks for the tip about the sizing, where did you read that?

Was it the Forest Canopy Shawl??

http://knittingasfastasican.com/forest-canopy-shoulder-shawl/

I posted my fo a few months ago I think. It was done in pink though, not red.

Here's the link to my blog post about it. http://sunflowerfairyknits.blogspot.com/2006/09/forest-canopy-shawl-done.html

I couldn't find the post I did on here.

It is a super easy lace pattern and beautiful! It's not free, but I couldn't find any other lace patterns for beginners that actually makes something useful, plus I've read Susan's blog for a long time and I knew that her pattern would be well done.

It teaches you how to use charts and has the written directions, tells you how to fix mistakes, how to pick yarns, etc.

I highly recommend it. She is supportive too. I had a question and she responded to my email very quickly.

Let me know if this helps!

Regarding the flower petal shawl, I searched craftster and I guess there was a KAL awhile back. Almost everyone agreed it was too narrow. I don't know what yarn I'm using because it was gifted to me by my boyfriend's mom (stash reduction) and it was a bulk skein w/o a brand name. It's 100% alpaca, fingering weight. It started out really boring tan color, so I dyed it a really subtle variegated green. Photos (plus for info) are on my blog, www.stringandsticks.blogspot.com.
