In the Words of Jane Austen...

Reader - I finished it!!!!!

Well, it's almost Austen...  the same sense of success, anyway.

Though I haven't blocked it yet, here is the finished shawl...

Finished shawl - unblocked

...and a close up of the lace edging,,,

Finished edging, close - unblocked

...which is finished with Paton's Cotton Top, a yarn I think is now obsolete, in a fetching shade of biscuit.  Nice, I think. (The biscuit, I mean).

I changed the instructions slightly, working an extra P row in the main colour, then doing one K row in the contrast and casting off loosely purlwise.
