So at last the sun has come out and I've managed to take some photos of my blocked Swallowtail Shawl. I knit this as part of a Knit-a-long on the Posh Yarn Ravelry group.
Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn Clark from Interweave Knits Fall 2006.
Yarn: Posh Yarn Eva 2ply (silk and cashmere) in Tinkerbell from my round one UK Swap pal.
Needles: 3.75mm Addi lace Turbos
Started: 17th April 2008
Finished: 26th May 2008
Modifications: I used beads instead of doing the nupps.
Comments: I thoroughly enjoyed knitting Swallowtail and I am thrilled with the results. The Eva is a dream to knit with, it has a fabulous drape and sheen. The colours is one I would never have chosen myself but I love it! The beads work really well too. I couldn't be faffed with knitting the nupps, however I do think the nupps look more like Lily of the Valley than the beads do. This project has made me want to knit more and more lace.
