WOW! I'm so amazed by all the shawls that are done! They are gorgeous and I'm totally intimidated. I've just started mine. I'm making the Pacific Waves Shawl in the Sonata Print Rose Garden. I love the color and am excited to see how it turns out. However since it requires casting on 541 stitches that in itself is a herculean accomplishment! Also it only reduces the equivalent of 1 stitch per row and there are a total of about 60 rows so basically you are knitting on somewhere around 500 stitches per row for THE ENTIRE SHAWL! It takes me quite awhile to knit each row. So far I've finished 8 rows. I noticed a problem in the instructions for Row 5 - after you knit the center stitch it doesn't tell you what to do until you get to the part where you are supposed to start the 14 waves again. Also oddly enough I noticed on the Elann site that the instructions for the solid Pacific Waves Shawl are actually different than those that are found in the Rose Garden one. Very strange! Is anyone else making this shawl?
