Could I really do it? Frog a whole lace shawl? You betcha!
At the top is the first attempt, finished November 1, 2011. Why, WHY!! Why couldn't I get points to appear at the bottom edge? The second attempt which I started December 30, has a purposely stretchy cast-on. What a difference!
The pins: In both pieces, the pins in the bottom edge are at every second bead. Can you see that the top one is pinned at four beads, and the bottom is pinned at "almost" three beads. That one stretchy cast on!
