Well, sort of. Decided to take my time.
How helpful you were! I now have some options other than composting my ruined treasure.
Those stains won't shift. The suggestion that I frame a portion of the shawl is a lovely one, and I do have a very nice photo of Olwyn to go with it, but framing will be a last resort only; the thought of cutting up my poor baby shawl is too awful just now.
I could wait until I have learned to knit well enough to replace/repair it myself, but you know how it is; life is short, and mine is littered with nine-day-wonder projects and unfinished good ideas. But stranger things have happened; I am really enjoying re-learning how to knit, and keep saying how much I would like to master a lacy pattern...
Thank you all for your suggestions, all of which have been received gratefully and considered carefully. There's no rush to resolve this difficulty; it took 38 years to get to such a pitch, after all.
I'll be back with news of whatever happens next.
