On the ground: it doesn't lie flat, but the green background is nice and the pretty flowers go well with the lace pattern.
On a wall: the trellis made it easier to arrange the shawl, but it shows through. Perhaps it doesn't matter that much; it matches the lace grid. I love the honeysuckle to the left!
On a gate: the background is a bit of a mess, but I could get most of the shawl in the photo.
I'm happy with how the centre point turned out - see previous post.
As mentioned above, I finished it last night. I had returned home after an unforgettable concert with L'Arpeggiata, which opened this year's Stockholm Early Music Festival; I was so high on the music that I might as well stay up a couple of hours to knit the last rows, cast off, wash and block the shawl and think about the concert. They were all superb, but I was especially captivated by Vincenzo Capezzuto's singing.
