I love the way it turned out. However, the knitting experience did have me on edge for a bit. You see, I had the brilliant idea to add another set of leaves to the lace edge, but I wasn't sure I had enough yarn. I thought I would try, and rip back if it ran out. The yarn did run out, but not until about half-way through the bind-off. It was a special stretchy bind-off that presumably took twice as much yarn as an ordinary one, so I tried binding off again, this time with a plain knitted bind-off. I got farther, but not far enough. One more yard of yarn and I might have made it! But I ripped back and worked the edge just as the pattern said.
My Live Oak Shawlette is done!
