Diamond Spires Shawl - The Beginning

So I swatched and casted on the Diamond Spires Shawl for Schaefer Yarn. I am doing model knitting for them.

I made this swatch with size 7 needles, but I couldn't figure out the gauge, so I cast on with size 6 needles. The size 7 was too lacey in my opinion. The yarn is soooooooooooo soft to work with, it's like buttah! Absolutely love it! I can't wait to knit some more with it! Although the color isn't my favorite, but I am sure they will have something in my palette. So far, I only knitted the border so there is nothing really to show, but the pattern knits up fast so I should have something soon!
