it taunted me with it's p5togs, and briefly, i gave up. i'm back to say: i win! the swallowtail shawl is done!
pattern: swallowtail shawl by evelyn clark from the fall 2006 issue of interweave knits
yarn: misti baby alpaca lace, less than 1 skein in yellow
needles: not pointy enough inox 3.5mm circulars
although i am guilty of complaining about purling 5 together, overall, i really did enjoy knitting this shawl. the end result is really beautiful and i'm sure it'll get lots of wear. i purchased some Soak, in the sola, evening garden scent and now the shawl smells fantastic too, kinda like walking into a Lush shop.
i'm already thinking about starting another shawl, because i'd like to have another lace project on the needles. i'm thinking maybe the shetland triangle from wrap style. i already have the book, and i have a few yarns to choose from, i may just cast on this evening.
have a lovely sunday!
