I've decided to try an edging from Sharon Miller's Heirloom Knitting for the ends of the shawl in progress.

I sometimes find myself confused following Miller's charts, mostly because she uses a black dot for a knit stitch, and I tend to read this as a purl stitch. So I re-did the chart using "Knit Visualizer". I also added in the faggoting header which is clearly shown in the photo, but not included in Miller's chart. Theoretically, I could have just added this in as I went. How hard can it be to throw in an extra "yo, k2tog" every row? But I say, why add one more thing to remember if I can just put it down on paper? I'm easily enough confused as it is.

Now my only question is: work this in stockinette or garter? Stockinette would look nicer, but garter wouldn't curl. Decisions, decisions..... I think I'll start out with garter and see how it goes.
