You know, blobs always turn out to be gorgeous!
If you feel that you understand the pattern, and that you are working it correctly (or as correctly as possible, somehow there's always that little stitch here and there that seem to be one too much or too few), then just knit on and it will be magic.
And to feel the love during the blob state, pin it out now and then to take a look.

Woah. You need some serious stitchmarkers on that thing. I put a marker between every repeat. It helps me catch mistakes within a row or two instead of ten or twelve rows in. Plus I count between each repeat as I go and it continues to reassure me that I have the right number of stitches.

Loose 10 pounds while knitting lace?!?! Sign me up. Seriously, I had given my SIL instructions to smack my upside my head if I knit a shawl in lace weight. I later amended it to 'if I want to learn to spin'.

Your blob will be beautiful - the color alone is worth it! Cheers! And remember with lace, don't drink and knit... :-)

I am glad you are giving lace a try. You may want to rethink the SSK for your next lace project. K2 Tog creates a right leaning decrease while a SSK gives a left leaning decrease. Once the shawl is blocked these details will show. Of course if you are not fussy about details just do the K2 Tog. At first I did not like to knit SSK's because they slowed my knitting rhythm. However with repetition they have become mindless to do and my speed improved.

Take care.
