Swallowtail Take 2

This is just one of those lace patterns that I'll probably knit a dozen times. It goes quick; with the perfect amount of row repeats and changes in charts. Smooth lace needles and some lovely silk just make my day. I love the Swallowtail.







Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn Clark; Interweave Knits Fall 2006
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns Sunsilk in Sprout
Needles: Addi 32" US4 (3.5mm)
Measurements: 45" across top edge, 23" down center
Started: May 2, 2008
Finished: May 10, 2008
Other Details: Just as fun as the first time! This one however, wasn't for me - it was a birthday present for a friend I work with :)

It's beautiful but I think the nupps are enough to put me off from ever making another one!

The color is spectacular! Says a lot about your yarns (not to mention your knitting skills...)

I haven't done this one yet - it's beautiful! I feel the same way about Charlotte's Web - I'm on my second one. Maybe I should branch out and try a Swallowtail, LOL!

i, too, love this pattern and am doing it in thicket sunsilk. i was inspired to try it when i saw another of your posts awhile back where you'd done it in what i recall was a tan type of color (mushroom or ???) and this color is also wonderful. when it came out in the Knitting Daily RCA top 5 i was ready and waiting!!
