I thought you might be interested in reading about my Sun Ray shawl battles a few months ago.
Ornery Sun Ray Shawl. In fairness it was the yarn and not the pattern. I did finish her tho' and pics are there. I would like to do her again this time in some sort of yellow, as inspired SK.
I didn't knit a stitch all weekend on my Luna due to an unexpected houseguest but he just pulled away so I will pick up the needles again and get her finished in a day or 2.
