Cast on TOOK FOREVER. I used a size US6 needle to cast on, switched to size US5 for the edging, and then back to a US6 for the body of the shawl.

And warning, there are a lot of important errata. I bought the PDF version of this Knitscene, copied the pattern to Word, incorporated the errata, and then formatted it so it was easier to read and follow.

This is the main reason why I don’t have a Knitscene subscription. The formatting of that magazine is the pits. Who can honestly say they love reading their pattern in skinny, little columns? My eyes cross! I’m glad they offer the PDF because otherwise I would just not bother.

Leftover from two skeins (each skein is 100g):
Manor (dark blue) - 33g
Mica (light grey) - 15g

The entire shawl is lovely! And the pattern has a certain rhythm to it you get used to after a few sections. Every time it instructed me to remove a marker, I did not. I instead left markers in and they let me know where to pick up stitches after the short rows were done. Also, I used markers in the decrease rows to section off the groups of decreases just to make them easier to count.

I will definitely be knitting the companion shawl to this!
