The fun of this shawl is the way you manage the color in blocks, working the two yarns from each edge inward so that they meet it the center. This particular approach allows the stripes to slide back and forth without new ends being introduced, so you only have the beginning and end of the skein to weave in. Once you have the setup stripes in place, it makes entertaining and portable knitting.
