Syrian Shawl Lace Edge

This part of the project hasn't been as traumatic as I thought it would be - I am actually enjoying it. The best part has been watching how the yarn behaves. The body of the shawl has a rainbow effect but the edging is knitting up with a graduated color effect - it is really pretty. (click on photo for close-up) I did not master the double join - I kind of fudged it, and it took me a while to figure out how best to work the edge stitches into the k2bl, but I'm happy with how it all worked out. 2.75 sides to go, I cant wait to see it blocked.
