Swallowtail Knit Along

I casted on for the swallowtail shawl yesterday and so far it is a really fun pattern.  I chose lace weight yarn.  My sister is using fingering weight yarn, I have no idea what brand or color.....yet.  Anybody and everybody who is interested in knitting this shawl with us is more than welcome.  The pattern can be found here.  The yarn that you choose is pretty flexible-lace, fingering or DK/sport.  Also in the pattern the designer gives you approximate yardage needed.  I am always thrilled when a designer has charts included. I seem to knit super fast with a chart.  

Today we will be moving all of our daughter's "stuff" from her dorm room back home.  That means that my clean house will be a mess.  Now by clean I mean uncluttered.  My house could always use a dusting or a sweep up.  I am looking forward to her being here and going on outings (she is always up for a car ride!).  She has her last final sometime this afternoon and then she will be done with undergraduate requirements.  Graduation is this weekend! 


  1. Congratulations to your daughter and to you! What a great Mother's Day gift!
    The shawl you are knitting looks so delicate and simply beautiful.
    Enjoy your busy weekend.

  2. Too bad I just started a lace project, it would have been fun to knit along with you and your sister. Congratulations to your daughter! Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Hmmm ... *eyeballs two-inches of seafoam green bridesmaid stole* Maybe I should take a break from this to knit my own shawl along with you?
