Swiftly Knitting :)


Well, originally I thought I'd post about this tomorrow, but I just can't contain myself and I have to share. She was done in just over a weeks time :) and most of the knitting was probably concentrated in to one day and a couple of evenings.

I have been trying to figure out different ways to wear triangular shawls, and I have some suggestions listed on my site - I went on that quest because I love knitting lace, but never wear it - mostly because I have no idea how to LOL

More info on the Swallowtail can be found via my Blog - if you're not interested in reading about how to wear lace, just scroll to the bottom and follow the link to my finished objects blog.

I've cast on now for a Red (sorry guys) Shetland Triangle Shawl, and a pair of Beaudelaires that will match my swallowtail - though those are only a few rows in and not much to look at - I'm loving the fact that the pattern is toe up :) my preferred method of knitting socks!

Lovely! And finished so quickly, too!

I discovered some teal/peacock laceweight in my stash, so a swallowtail is definitely on my to-knit list now :)
