I cast off Swallowtail this morning - another quick knit and a great palate cleanser. This is the shawl pre-blocking. The spine is just about 16 inches deep, which is way too small to wear as a proper shawl or scarf at this point. My first Swallowtail grew quite a bit in size, though, and I expect the same with this one. I also had plenty of yarn left over, so no nail-biting on finishing.
Now it's time to swatch for other projects! Whee! Maybe I'll even manage to block this guy within a month of finishing it.
You have infected me- I dug up some pearl-grey lace-weight Zephyr and am knitting a swallowtail shawl... all because of you!
