Swallowtail is finished and blocked. Despite uncooperative weather and cranky daughters, I managed to get a few photographs.
Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl, Fall 2006 Interweave Knits by Evelyn A. Clark
Yarn: Just Our Yarn, Myne 100% cashmere, hand painted, less than one 500 yard skein
Needles: Knitpicks Size US #3
Modifications: Since the yarn I used is much finer than the called for yarn, I did 5 extra repeats on the "budding lace" section.
Finished size, after blocking: 46" width across top edge, 23" long at point
Hints: I used a size zero needle to pick up and purl the 5 stitches to make the nupps, then transfered the new stitch back onto the size 3's which I was working with. With the points on the Knitpicks needles, this worked really well.
