Tada.... Evelyn Clark's Swallowtail Shawl.

I just finished Evelyn Clark's Swallowtail Shawl. This was my endeavor for Lacevember. With only a few days left in the month, I am proud to say that it is finally completed.

I did need to alter the edging just a tad, since I used yarn that I had in my stash, and only had a limited amount. Even with the changes, I think it came out pretty darn good. Lace continues to awe me as it undergoes the blocking metamorphosis from a blob of nothingness into the most beautiful piece of handiwork. It never ceases to amaze me.

Obligatory Stats:

  • Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl
  • Designer: Evelyn Clark
  • Size: 72"x 36"
  • Yarn: Zitron Kokon by Skakel (Silk/Cotton blend)
  • Skeins: 3 (525m)
  • Needles: Size 9 US
