Rose Trellis Stole and More About 'c' and 'g'

I have started a lace stole using the Noro King yarn I purchased a couple of weeks ago. It is multicoloured so not, perhaps, the best choice for this type of lace stole but I think it will look OK. So far, so good. It is Jenn's Rose Trellis stole by Tina Kroshl which was inspired by one of Barbara Walker's basic stitch patterns from 'A Treasury of Knitting Patterns'. I made it 1/3 narrower by eliminating a repeat on each side and it seems to be working out.
One of our favourite places for a lunch al fresco with cheap lunch specials and $2 beers and margaritas is Hurricane Hank's Bar and Grill. It's address is 14333 Crabtrap Court (I kid you not) and although not in view of the Gulf, it is located adjacent to the Hudson Marina.

While there yesterday I cast on the Rose Trellis shawl whilst awaiting the arrival of my shrimp in a basket.
Skip thinks Hurricane Hanks has the best $2 beer he's ever had.
Everything just tastes better when one is dining outside.

After yesterday's post, Julia succinctly noted that in Italian it is the letter after the 'c' or 'g' that determines its pronunciation. If followed by the vowel 'a', 'o' or 'u', the hard sound is used as in cara, cubo, coda, Gabriella, gol, guardare. If the 'c' or 'g' is followed by an 'e' or 'i' it is the soft sound as in cello, cinque, gelato and Gina.
