Never thought I would make it and I wouldn't have without help from Dee and fellow knitters here.
This is the most difficult thing I have ever knit and although it is a beautiful pattern and very well written, it and I just didn't gel. However I hate giving up on anything and I really wanted to make this for a friend's birthday.
She is a fellow knitter, likes Art Deco and purple, so I'm sure she will love it. Thanks to everyone who helped me along the way.
Pattern is Glenallen shawl by Dee O'Keefe and yarn is Drops Lace a blend of baby alpaca and mulberry silk, which was lovely to knit with.
Now, just one more task - how to wrap it. All suggestions gratefully received!!
Off the pins....
On the blocking wires.....
