Sheep to shawl: Cast on

Time to start knitting my handspun. I had intially planned to knit another Ishbel shawl but as I started it was soon clear that my handspun does not have the drape for a fine lace shawl and I needed to look for something more 'rustic' to suit my yarn!

The pattern I have chosen is The Old Shale lace Shawl published in the Summer 08 issue of Spin Off magazine and so far it seems a good match for my yarn.

I had a good look at the shale pattern on Ravelry and it looks excellent.
I may have to follow your example - if I ever finish my spinning...
