Swallowtail Shawl

 Sometimes I get the urge to knit a nit of lace, this one has been on the never ending list for a while.

I have saved you ploughing through all the pictures with a collage.

Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl, Interweave Knits Fall 2006

Yarn: Posh Eva 2ply, 2 skeins.

Shade: Dove (very hard to photograph!)

Pattern Modifications: I did 19 repeats of the Budding Lace 2 and 2 repeats each of the Lily of the Valley Borders.

29g of yarn left over, not sure there’s much can be done with it but if anybody would like it let me know.

Back onto Socks for my holiday I think.
