Frost Flower and Leaves progress

I've been working a little bit on my Frost Flowers and Leaves shawl, and I finished Chart 2 for the second time.

I haven't made a ton of progress on this since I last posted a photo but I've got a handle on the lace pattern now. Before when I was working on it I had to follow the cart really closely but now I feel like I only have to glance at it at certain parts. It's going much faster despite the rows being longer. Not that I'll work on it other than when everyone is in bed--I still need to concentrate! The good thing is that I didn't have to tink more than 3 stitches at a time during the whole second repeat!! Great, now I've cursed myself and will undoubtedly have to rip back. LOL!

The shawl in the photo looks a little odd because my needle isn't long enough to spread it out at a 90 degree angle, and I'm not going to put it on some waste yarn just to take a picture. Sorry! :-)

The lifeline (white cotton crochet thread) is dividing chart 1 and chart 2, in case you were curious.

Wow! That's lovely. It's so much prettier in your blue than the original white.
