Here she is, set up section and first chart A repeat completed:
The beads slow things down, of course, and it grows exponentially, but it will be worth it.
Most of the shawls I've knit for myself are blue, so knitting a red one is a big change for me. I will just need to track progress and work on it consistently, so that I finish on time. At the start, they go quickly, but the last third takes forever, and the picot bind off has you crocheting long chain points which are beaded, adding on about 3,000 sts, so that will be a huge challenge as well.
Challenge accepted! :)
