Swallowtail Shawl

Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark in Interweave Knits Fall 2006
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Laceweight in Lipstick Lace (acquired during an online swap)
Started: Mid-August 2006
Finished: January 26, 2007

I started out with lots of steam but ran into problems once I hit the nupps. I put it away in early September and tried to pick it up a few times but kept getting discouraged. I finally got back to it in mid-January when it occured to me that this would be an excellent shawl to wear on Valentine's Day. I'm happy that it's done and, though I love Evelyn A. Clark's patterns, I will not be knitting this one again.
