Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn Clark. Interweave Knits, Fall '06. Yarn: Knit Picks Shimmer in Turquoise Splendor. Needles: Knit Picks Options, US 6. You already know how much I love this pattern, and this yarn, so really what more can I say? It was a dream to knit. I wasn't quite sure I could pull off wearing a shawl, being the cranky hipster that I am, but I think it's pretty beautiful and definitely worth showing off!
I almost didn't want to cast off because I loved knitting it so much! I don't know if I'll make another Swallowtail anytime soon, but this definitely has a place in my "Favorite Patterns" collection!
