It took me over two month to complete my Clementine Shawlette from Interweave Knit Spring. The reason it slow me down is the shawl is knitted in two separate pieces. I always find that doing two identical piece is very boring..even for sleeve. After I finish the first piece, the second piece have been sitting in the drawer until last week. I don't have much problem with this pattern until I have to seam two individual panel together..which the nightmare begin.. I try to seam it as the way it suggested but it turn out quite horrible, you can see two purl row like it split open. So I trying to be clever using three needle bind-off which result with a very visible line at the back. At the end I decide to give it one more try on the seaming it suggest by taking off last purl row on the first panel and it turn out much better.

That is just gorgeous!  I am not much for wraps but I am adding that to my ever-growing "to do' list.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

Your clementine is gorgeous!
I am trying to knit this beast and keep end up having to rip out rows because I screwed something up! Do you have any words of wisdom or little tricks so that I don't keep unknitting my lacework? (this is my first lacey project btw)

you could tread/put in a scrap yarn or dental floss every few pattern repeat, so when you made mistake you don't have to rip out everything.http://formeknitalong.blogspot.com/2007/05/lifeline-tutorial.html
