Wild Prairie Lace Shawl

So after reading the reviews on this kit, I'm fully convinced some people don't read directions. This is a very easy shawl to knit if you are an advanced beginner and above. It starts from the top center with a garter tab cast on. It will be slightly "pointy" until you knit several rows. I probably should've taken more pictures as I was knitting but I was humming along and totally forgot (I started this on a Saturday night and finished it on Sunday afternoon). The picot bind off is really easy as well and is on the very bottom of the last page. The shawl must be blocked after knitting or else it will stay bunched up. I let mine soak in luke warm water with some Unicorn Fiber wash for about 30 mins, drained, rinsed it and spun the excess water out of it (something I wouldn't do with a more delicate item) I chose the "maple" color as I've knit with it before and really liked it. Please feel free to contact me with any questions if you're having problems with this kit, I don't get anything from Craftsy for doing so, I just don't like it when people blame their problems on the pattern instead of their lack of being able to read properly. Sorry if this sounds harsh but that's not a reason to leave a bad review IMO. I almost forgot to add that I used 3 full skeins and only about a yard out of the 4th, which was slightly annoying but I think I'm going to knit a cabled headband with what's left over so no loss there :)
