Swallowtail Shawl


Another holiday project: two Swallowtail shawls made with Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud: one in a teal color the other lilac. I've sent in a request to join the Swallowtail knitalong, which always helps me stay focused. This is really my first attempt at real lace so I hope it goes well. I know this is way too ambitious to pull off but I love to challenge myself.

My holiday WIPs are now: Swell hats for 2 nephews, Argyle socks for 1 brother, Pocket Shawl for mom, and two arm warmers for whoever ...

Other WIPs for me: Silkroad Cardigan, Vintage pullover and I need to alter my pattern for houndstooth and make another sweater. I'm really hoping to submit this pattern somewhere, somehow!

take care, Sue
