All in all, I think the ghilie green was a good decision.  I was afraid that the contrast edging would end up looking like what it is: a last-minute substitution, the product of necessity and not invention.  But it actually kind of works.

The contrast gives the shawl a little pizzazz around the edges and frames the lace patterns nicely; the barberpole-like stripes where the edging joins the body ease the transition.  It looks funky in a good way, I think.  (I hope.)

I’ve still got a long way to go, though.

Luckily, a 6-row repeat over a maximum of 7 stitches practically knits itself.  Practically.
