^I don't know why this picture is so distorted (on my screen at least) so here's a link to it: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v672/UnstoppableBoogie/swallowtailshawl009.jpg

Once again, another project where it took me at least three times as long to do the finishing and blocking as to actually knit the darn thing.



I used just over 2 skeins of Lorna's Lace Shepherd Sport weight in Navy, on 5mm (US size Cool needles. This project went FAST, and it was a great comfort level for me.



The pattern's in the most recent Interweave Knits (fall 2006), and it only takes just over 400 yds, so it's pretty economic to boot. Unless you want a HUGE shawl, though, I'd recommend staying with sport weight or less.

There's way more info, photos and blather on the blog: http://shaxophile.blogspot.com/2006/09/fo-swallowtail-shawl.html

It's absolutely beautiful and I really like that it's quite compact.  Lovely colour, too.

It's beautiful and I really like the size. I'm planning on knitting one with sport weight yarn also and so am grateful that you blogged about your thoughts on this shawl.
