It's actually finished and blocked now and of course looks much better now that it is blocked. My camera battery is dead right now and I'll post another photo of the finished product later.
Here's the yarn.. it's a nicer color than this- the photo was taken at night and the light wasn't very good.
Yarn: Italian mohair Filatura Di crosa
I used one 40 gram skein and a small amout of another skein.
The lace stitch is from one of the Barbara Walker's stitch pattern books.
I'm mailing it as a gift for a friend's mother tomorrow.
