I've just finished the first set of charts for this pattern. (There are 2 sets + edging) and I'm really enjoying it. I have done some lace knitting before and I'm finding that I have to pay attention, but the pattern isn't so complex that it's a chore to work on. For the main part of the shawl and most of the edging, all the shaping is on the RS so you get the WS to have a bit of a rest! The pattern and the instructions are clear. The charts print off nicely and are easy to read with symbol keys right next to where you are looking.
