Still Enchanting

These aren't the best pictures, but I wanted to show you I am still working away on the Enchanted Wood Shawl:

This picture was taken after I finished clue 3; now I'm about halfway through clue 4 and coming up on the finish. I think there is only one more clue left. The yarn is gorgeous (once again, my camera fails to do it justice) and the beads are a delight. I only wish I had started with the opposite color. I really wanted a shawl that was more green than blue, but since this is a mystery shawl, I had no way of knowing that the pattern was heavily weighted in favor of the starting colors, with a much smaller portion of the later colors actually used. Ah well. Live and learn. The blue is lovely, too.

In the closeup, you can see the pretty beads. They're really iridescent, with blue, purple, and green, just like the yarns. Once I get it blocked, I'll get some better pictures...I hope!

You have way more sticktoitivity than I ever would in the case of lace. I'm making a shawl right now for a KAL and I can only knit one row at a time because I can't concentrate on all the counting!

Your shawl is beautiful! I l.o.v.e that yarn!

is Enchanted Wood a difficult pattern? Possible for an intermediate knitter? Would love to knit it, but wouldn't want to buy all the yarn if it's too frustrating.
