Knitting lace. With lace!

Tried before and convinced it was not my cup of tea. But when this yarn arrived, I decided to reconsider my earlier decision and give it another go.
I spent a few hours browsing for a nice pattern and found Mystic Waters, just what I was looking for. And I must confess, it really goes well. Yes, there are a few mistakes, but I found out to fix them without frogging the whole thing. And I have learned there is no need to make the perfect shawl. I might go for the smaller version, don't know that yet, but for now I'm pretty pleased with the progress.
