Belle Nuit - Finished Chart A

I finished Chart A of the shawl.  I actually started it over again.  It had a simple cable stitch bordering each section and I just couldn't stand the interruption in the flow of the knitting, and cabling with lace weight is just too fiddly, so I substituted two fake cable stitches - a right twist and left twist.  It made things go much quicker and gives a similar appearance as the original cable.  Before I can do much more, however, I need to get a smaller crochet hook.  I have a 1 mm, and I can get it through some of the beads, but a smaller one would make things much easier.  The pattern calls for a 0.6 mm one.
