Damson progress report

Absolutely ages ago I started knitting a Damson shawl (by Ysolda) for my mother's birthday. It was all going well until I got to the scalloped edge and somehow was five or six stitches short. I tried to figure it out myself but was totally flummoxed. I had to trip back quite a few rows. Finally I gave in and took it to Lettuce Knit, a lovely knitting shop in Kensington Market which I know carries Ysolda's patterns. A very nice lady there helped me work things out (I snuck in some increases on the 74th row), so now I am back on track. Phew. Now if I can just carry through and finish it off, mom might get this shawl some time before her next birthday!
