Stolen stitches - orchid thief

This summer seems to have been one for knitting patterns by Ysolda Teague. The latest pattern to be finished is the elegant Orchid Thief. Knitted in Lang's Jawoll Magic, the shawl took just over one ball. Ysolda noted that this would be a tight fit. I ran out of yarn 4.5 rows before the end. Fortuneately there was another ball at home. In blocking the edges have ended up slightly ruffled, it's not meant to be like this but I quite like it.
