Twite-Tail Shawl


I started this shawl before I left California and finished it up last night here in Shetland. I decided to rename it the Twite-Tail shawl after the wee swallow-like birds that have been sitting on the telephone wire outside my parent's house.
I thought I might have to abandon this once I reached the nubb-knitting part....purl 5 together was proving a big pain in the butt......BUT.....thanks to good old Ravelry I found something that worked spiffingly.....moving the knitting down to the wire of my circular needle for the p5tog...brilliant!
This is going to my lovely sister-in-law for her birthday next week.

Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn clark
Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr merino/tussah silk
Mods:None!
Now back to some designing!

It's a beautiful shawl and so pretty in white. It's funny to see a Danish woodburning stove in the background. I like that too :)

Yeah! Glad to hear there are new designs coming! And looking forward to sitting beside that stove myself, family all around, tummy full of fish pie as the gale howls outside. Paradise...
