"Ain"t She Perty!!!!"
Finished My Swallowtail Shawl last night and here she is washed and being Blocked...
This is my First Real Lacy Big Project and The First time Blocking... I am very Pleased at how it came out and proud of myself that I stuck it out even in the hard times of lace knitting... Thanks to those lifelines that saved the whole Shawl... They really came in handy a few times !!!
The yarn is by Katia and it is a wool/merino...
This should be a great cozy lightweight shawl to wrap myself up in with all the air conditioning down here in Florida !!!

Beautiful job! I love lace but find that I have to concentrate only on that or I screw up. But like you I swear by lifelines!
