Start: 15th September 2007
Finish: 17th October 2007
Yarn: Sheepaints MariSilk (70% silk, 30% seacell), "Elvegrass"
Needles: Addi Lace, 3.5 mm - 80 cm (US#4 - 32")
Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark from Interweave Knits Fall 2006
The cocoon has hatched, and out came a beautiful Swallowtail.
I finished the shawl a couple of days ago, but couldn't get a good photo of it indoor...so I took the chance today and went out to do some outdoor shootings, unfortunately sans model.
With the exception of the p5tog for the nupps, I think that this is a good knit. It's interesting enough to keep the attention to it, not too hard to make and not too huge to make. It does take a while, but still, it's a lovely shawl to knit!
ETA: I'll probably give this to my mum for Christmas...coz I doubt I'll get the Icarus finished in time.
Okay, maybe I lied about the model....there was this busker in the Diana Pavilion when I was taking the photos of the shawl, so I asked her whether I could drape it over her and the cello to take the photo. She said yes....and kinda chuckled to herself. Must have been pretty funny that there's an Asian guy taking photos of a lace shawl. :-p
Have a great weekend!
