What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that I didn't give up even though I was sorely tested and very confused when it came time to start the edging.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ask for help. Although the author never responded to my comments or questions others did and that was helpful

Your shawl is gorgeous. Could you help me understand how to get it started and how to set the shells border? You seem to have understood the pattern much better than I...

thank you for the complement! I have to say, I really struggled with it at first. The trick is really in the blocking. The edge looked very straight prior to blocking. I made a intentional effort to really pull the points out from the body using straight pins when I blocked it out on the board. DOes that help?

I am getting ready to start shells. I don't know where to begin. Do I start on row 27 & work down? How do I do row 26 & the rest off the even rows? I give you a lot of credit for being able to figure this out. If you can help me complete this I would be grateful.

I have read comments and worked out most for myself. I am on Row 25 of shell. When I do the double decreases, my stitch number does not matter, although 23 and 24 are fine. The first "edge" that is to have two double decreases leaves me one stitch short, while the second, at the middle, has one too many. The same with the other edges after the middle stitch. Can I just do one for the first edge and two for the one before the middle, and the same for the other half? I know it is not a marker problem, as my 11's are all lined up. I hate to give up so close to being finished. Thanks Donna in SC dustbunniesfun@aol.com

Did you get any help? I have same problem.

I seem to recall the same problem at some point, and I just made some minor adjustments, added in one or took one more out, and I have to say, when it was all blocked out, it was not noticeable.
