Shawl of Doom

I'm in a knitalong for the Shawl of Doom .  If you've ever knit a shawl or even seriously considered knitting one, go read this pattern.

No one in their right mind would make this, so of course I had to cast on immediately.  I'm using this horrible cotton/lycra yarn that feel like rubber.  I'm adding Fibonacci stripes in an equally unpleasant yarn with sequins in it.  That one unravels.  You can't weave the ends of either yarn in nicely.  I do ten rows at a time to earn the privilege of doing something else.  My last reward was making a swatch.  How horrible does a project have to be for a swatch to be a reward?

Why am I doing it?  Because I can.  :)
