Basic Mesh-Filet Shawl

As it's getting to be spring/summer here in Phoenix some days it's in the 80*F and some nights are still under 60*F. I have decided to try a few new shawl patterns to open up my creative options LOL I was getting bored w/ the same 3 patterns.. I came across this one called  One Skein Basic Filet Shawl at first I was having a few issues understanding it but one I re-read it a few times got it going.. Here is a picture for now I am still working on it..can't wait to see if finished....
