Newbie Nupper

I have completed all of the repeats of the first chart of the Spring Things Shawl. I'm starting the second chart and am approaching the dreaded nupps. So many lace knitters have complained about the difficulty of knitting nupps that it seems like the very mention of the word is enough to send knitters running from a pattern.

The Spring Things Shawl offers the alternative of substituting beads in place of the nupps. I've decided to bite the bullet and go for the nupps - in other words...I'm too lazy to go out and find some beads. :)

Will the nupps be so terrible?

I guess we shall see...
