Hi, and a progress report

Hi Everyone--

I started my shawl last week, but didn't take a picture till today (and not a very exciting one at that!).

I'm about 2 repeats in, using Andrea from Schaefer Yarns, and a size 3 needle. The color (light greens and yellows) is completely lost in this picture, but it's very pretty in real life.

I have about 200 yards more than called for in the pattern, so I'm thinking about making the stole a bit longer--knitting an extra repeat of the basketweave, then an approximately equal number of extra rows of the petal end (although I haven't decided what section I should repeat)--since I think my gauge is a bit small. Or maybe it's not--I didn't swatch, and I haven't blocked this bit yet. I like to live on the edge.
