I can be dorkalicious too!

I made this for the BiL.  Can't debute it on the bloggy thing yet because, well, he's now a reader.  D'oh!  Made from a kit purchased from the wonderful Emisanboo at Wear With Style.  Thanks chicka!

Adam made an Apple Logo'd felted case for his Mac.  It came out fabulously!  Here's the flickr photo montage of his process.  He needle felted it on.  Something to consider...

If it's not 100% acrylic and has a good amount of natural fibers in it, blocking should take care of that.  Wash the scarf according to the ball band directions (I usually ignore them and always go for a gentle soaking in Eucalan and press with a towel to get out the extra water) lay it out flat and pin it if you have to, into the shape and length you're going for.  When it's dry, it should hold the shape just fine.

Wow!  I absolutely LOVE the color you chose!  The pattern really pops!  Fabulous job!

Sheldon has His Own Blog too!  I got to test knit the pattern too!  It was so much fun, and a bunch of firsts for me.  First time doing an applied i-cord edging, first time doing a crocheted edging, first time making a stuffed animal!  It was great!  Props to Ruth for writing a wonderful pattern.

I did the pink on pink version.  Grin

It's amazing! I'm also knitting the Swallowtail shawl, but it's not in proper lace weight yarn, so I doubt it will look as lovely as yours.

Mine's not either.  The Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool is dk weight I believe.  That's why mine came out larger than the pattern is written.  I'm sure yours will look fabulous!

Thank you all so much.  I am so very proud of this shawl.  I'm wearing it now at work and all my knitter friends here were out of their offices when I went to show them.  No one else has said anything unless I tell them - "Look!  I made this!"  Muggles.  They just don't get it.

It looks to be a lacey pattern similar to Hedera.  I saved the pic to my harddrive and was able to zoom in a bit on the hat.  It's definitely knitted. 1x1 ribbing around the brim, stockinette after the lacey portion.

Pattern: Swallowtail Lace Shawl from Fall '06 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool it's a dark navy blue I don't have the color number. It took just over 2 hanks.
Needles: US 8
Started: October 12th
Finished: December 2nd.

This is my first lace shawl and it took me a while because I only worked on it on Sundays for the most part.  I took a class to get me through this as my first lace shawl was a complete disaster.  Now that I've finished this successfully, I'll be going back to that first shawl.  I will not let Adamas defeat me!

For the nupps, I did a Sl3 P2tog psso instead of the p5tog.  Because I had no interest in slowly driving myself insane.

I've been working on mine for a while - granted it took a back seat to my Christmas knitting for a bit but I tried to get it done in time for Lacevember!  Alas, I still have the final chart to finish.  Yours looks gorgeous!  I can only hope to be able to show mine off as well sometime next week.
