Side one done...

Despite digging another garden (more on that tomorrow), I did manage to finish up the first side of the wedding shawl this weekend.
It certainly doesn't look long enough ,but I followed the pattern exactly - five full repeats then the edge chart. I keep reminding myself that it still needs it's second side. And... we all know how lace opens up. This baby is going to grow and grow when it gets wet.

Of course, now the first side is done, I'm suffering from Second Side Syndrome... (much like Second Sock).. but I've got to push myself through it. Not only does this have a deadline... I've got other deadline projects in mind...
