Update on my 1st Swallowtail Shawl

Here's a couple of pictures of my 1st Swallowtail Shawl using Misti Alpaca Lace:


I started this shawl on Mar 3, 2007 and finished it on Mar. 9, 2007. I'm planning on making the next one larger by doing 19 reps on chart 2 vs 14 reps. This was really fun to knit and the nupps were not as bad as I thought they were going to be. I used my working needle and a dpn held together when I did the yo's. This kept them loose enough to do the purl 5 tog on the next row, and it didn't slow me down that much.
My next Alpaca project will be a scarf from the Artic Lace book using Alpaca Cloud from Knitpicks.

Holy super-speed! I wish I could make a lace shawl that quickly, and that beautifully.
Great FO :)

Whew, no kidding. And I thought I was fast getting a pair of socks done in 7 days!

Wow, you finished the Swallowtail shawl in six days? I spent a month doing mine. Yours is so beautiful. I like the color too. I can`t wait to see your next alpaca shawl.

Six days? Wow. I just cast mine one, but I don't think it will go that quickly. Any advice for the nupps? Everyone seems to do theirs a little differently.
