Mum of the Bride Shawl
For the last two months, I've ate, slept and breathed pink laceweight wool, knitting it up into a Swallowtail shawl. Mum wanted it larger, so I approximately doubled the pattern size (maybe a little more). It went quite well, with minimum error, and no major frogging!
Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn Clark (Interweave Knits Magazine)
Needles: Knit Picks Harmony Interchangeable Circulars, US#4 (Hated the join on these!) and Crystal Palace Bamboo DPN, US#0 (Used for the p5tog's of the nupps)
Yarn: Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Peppermint Twist (Used 1.5 skeins - very nice to work with)
Modifications: Increased the main pattern from 14 repeats to 24 repeats
Begun: September 1, 2008
Finished: November 1, 2008
Just off the needles:
Congrats to Mr & Mrs DSis!!!
