Swallowtail Shawl

 

First completed project of 2011 is finished and on its way to the recipient.  Despite adding additional repeats to the center motif, the final measurements still brought in a modest sized shawl; however, I am still pleased with the results.


This was a pleasant knit from beginning to end and I began to miss it immediately after casting off.  Even though I like the look of nupps, I hate knitting them; however, that didn’t seem to pose a problem.  The nupps in this pattern are fairly small (only 5 or 6 loops) and were not nearly as painful as some I’ve done in the past.

 

I am still on the look out for the perfect cardigan-a Sunday sloucher, tweedy silk/wool mix, warm but not too chunky,not too thin,maybe a few cables?  …
