Timeline: Took me 10days to knit, plus one to block. Went very fast indeed, even though the final stitch count was approx. 406sts!
I really enjoyed this knitting this shawl, the border helped keep it interesting. The finished product is very, very delicate, more so than my Shetland Triangle. It seems to have a definite Victorian air about it.
As for the dreaded nupps (rhymes with soups), I actually didn't have any trouble at all. Before beginning I watched this video on the Knitting Daily website, and found it very helpful.
Stylistically, bobbles and bobble-like elements aren't really my thing, but I actually really like the nupps, I think it helps that they are knit in laceweight as it then creates a fairly delicate look.
