Scrunched up Lace Knitting

The rows are getting longer and the lace pattern is getting more complex....although it's still very simple lace. At this point, I can't stretch out the whole shawl to show it off because the project is longer than the needles.

Yarn: Knitpicks Hawthorne, Forest Park
Pattern: Wailea Shawl 

Before it's finished and blocked, lace has a habit of scrunching up into a completely unsightly lump. It will come of the needles and stretch into shape and look the way it should...but I'm not there yet.
That yellow yarn running through the stitches? It's a lifeline. I'm trying to learn from my mistakes.

Socks start looking like socks as soon as you've got a toe or a cuff.

Yarn: Patons Kroy, Turquoise Stripes
