It looks so pretty!

Fine lace can grow a lot when blocked, but the bigger, the better, I'd say!

I'm sure you'll be ready in plenty of time, Kaz - it is only the end of May, after all, and you're half way up the main body of the shawl. It's looking fabulous, that must surely be a good incentive to keep going!

An update....

It's fighting back at the moment.......
I've finished the centre panel and I'm doing the 2nd border which has to be grafted on.
I thought that the border was difficult the first time around because it was all so new but no.......it's just 'difficult'.
It didn't help that I found 2 dropped stitches caught 8 rows down on a lifeline and had to pull it back to the lifeline, pick up the 164 stitches and try to make sense of the pattern again - thank oodness for lifelines/

It looks like a dishrag until it is washed and 'dressed' when finished.
It measures about 4 foot at the moment but should dress out to past 5 foot which is the length that Jen wants.

Oh well, soon time to start the edging :shock: (and HOW many days left until the wedding?)

Wow, it looks amazing! It's so frustrating when you have to pull it out, but as you say, thank goodness for lifelines!
