more knitting: lace shawl laminaria

Last week, I cast on for my newest knitting project. After being a knitter for about 4 months, why not make a lace shawl? A very friendly knitting expert and yarn store employee helped me to find the right needle: an Addi metal needle. The cord/needle joint is very smooth and the needle itself looks and feels good while knitting with it.
The pattern I really really wanted to do is Laminaria. It really looks harder than it is, now that I'm into the blossom chart part I really don't regret choosing this one.

As a beginning lace knitter, I put in lifelines into the knitting every 5 or 6 rows or so. Today was the first time I was glad I had them:

When I reached the end of the row, I saw I had one stitch less than I should have on my left needle. I checked the knitting and saw that I had the pattern lining up correctly, so I looked at the place where the stitch was missing and I found it, it had dropped off the needles and stopped on the lifeline.
And it was really easy to fix! :-)
