thanks everyone! I was extremely nervous about this project. I thought about it many times since March. at one point, I actually didn't think I would want to finish. I have about 2 more projects sitting around, from a few months ago that will more than likely be frogged (they were baby things and the babies have already grown).
Oh, that is outright gorgeous! Can you show it against something white or solid? I'd love to see the detail.
I finished it the night before we visited grandma, so I blocked it overnight, picked it up the next morning and took the quick shots I have. I totally didn't even think about putting it on anything solid! there are many Swallowtail Shawls out there, you can see (on flickr
