Swallowtail

Finally finished her over the weekend.

I took another Nupp-a-licious shot because I could:

Swallowtail shawl from IK 2006 Fall issue
Yarn was spindle spun from batts made by Enchanted Knoll.
The Yarn is a 2 ply fingering weight and worked out beautifully in this application. I gave the shawl to my Mom (they’re her colors) and she’s thrilled with it. I’m thrilled to have it of my needles so I can start something else. I’ve not settled on what that something else is but I have a good idea what it might be…

    So pretty. And, so beautifully spun. And, done so quickly. (starts cowering and feeling shame for knitting so slowly)
