It is a really quick knit, and the construction is great, knitting the yoke first using short rows, and then picking up sts along the edge to knit down the body. best of all its mostly garter stitch so its easy peasy!
I also have my mom's shawl to work on, but because the test knit is due soon, I have only been working on it maybe 1 row a day, just to say I did something on it. With the rows being over 300 sts long, they take me a while to do a repeat of the pattern. I am very close to the lace part of the shawl. I think I have decided, if i didn't before, that I will put in silver beads, I just need to figure our how many I want to use. The beads will go in the lace part and make the edging shiny and beautiful!
