I kept the lace in stockinette as I felt it would look better. I am pleased with the result.
Timantti is done. I made quite a number of changes from the original. I did the plain parts in garter as I prefer garter stitch for hand-painted yarns. I am quite pleased with the result. I also added a second section of the hand-painted yarn below the lace. As a result, I've used up 2 50 gm balls of Irving Park and what was left of a ball of Violet in Lorna's Lace Shepherd Sock.
I am also happy with the size. I have decided that I'm not a small shawl person. I like larger shawls. So this is the size I like. It goes over the shoulders and keeps my neck clear. I hate stuff around my neck. I haven't found a good way to wear a small shawl without it being around my neck.
Now back to the Rose Lace Collar Bohus...
