Swallowtail shawl is done – not a joke

Swallowtail lace shawl blocked

I finished binding off last night and blocked tonight. I can’t believe it! I started this about 6 months ago and must have ripped out mistakes 3 or 4 times, to the point that John thinks I knitted backwards more than forward. Anyway, I’m still kind of surprised how small it is considering I added the extra budding lace repeats following these instructions. Something else that is awesome is that I used up my skein of Knitpicks Alpaca Lace down to the last meters! I don’t believe I could have finished another row, what a stroke of luck!

    Wow, it is beautiful!!

    Now could you, would you, please finish my butterfly shawl that I began 3 years ago? And I did knit backwards more than forward and decided to wait ’til my brain was working again…..
