The Year of Knitting Lacily: November Update Update

Well, Lila is finally finished! Kirsty at Wharfedale Woolworks came through with a matching skein of hand dyed Eirene, a little paler than the original skein but giving a nice contrast for the body. The body is straightforward short-row stocking stitch. The pattern says to use a firm cast off to help maintain the crescent shape of the shawl, but did not advise on which cast off to use. I opted for Slip Stitch Crochet Cast Off, which is quick and simple and very firm.
