WIP-it Wednesday...

...in which I unveil the latest WIP, the Rockefeller shawl. Here's what I've knit so far:

Rockefeller Moon shawl

I need to knit 31 of wedges to make the top portion of the shawl. Each wedge calls for 3 wrap-and-turns...ugh! I'm trying the Japanese short row method for the next couple of wedges to see whether I like they way they look. I've done one so far and it's a little better than W&T, but a bit fiddly.
