Shawl Debate

This is my big shawl debate. I like the looks of both of the shawls. They are both really pretty and I think that I would use them. The trouble comes down to that The Snowdrop Shawl has 218 sts picked up on each side of the shawl and the instructions are a little vague. The Pacific Northwest shawl has the same sort of border to it, but no pickup, it is all knit at the same time. Then there is that Blair is doing the Pacific Northwest Shawl. So, in theory, I could end up with both shawls in the end instead of the same one in two different colors. Then Sarah pointed out that if we both worked on the same shawl then we could help one another. This is really driving me crazy trying to make a decision. I am sure that I will have one by the 15th when the KAL begins, but please give me your opinions and see if we can figure this out.

The PNW looks easier, in that the instructions are fully figured out. That might keep your frustration down.

Is there any way to adapt the edge of the snowdrop and utilize the type of finished edge that the PNW uses?
