Starting First Shawl

I just started my shawl last night. This is my first lace knitting project. The yarn I using is Classic Elite's Inca Alpaca and size 7 needles. To make sure I don't goof up too much with the pattern, I find that I end up counting my stitches every other row. I'm really happy to find a knitalong for this shawl.

It's looking great so far! Try looking at what is happening to each "bud" as you knit it. Or example, on one row, you are closing each bud, and doing a yo,k1,yo between each bud. You will soon be able to see if you aren't doing the correct thing in the correct spot and won't have to count anymore.
