Swallowtail Shawl




After blocking, the shawl measured 42" wide and 22" tall. It's nice and small, so none of the sections got boring. The nupps weren't that hard, though I can't imagine doing them with a blunt needle. My husband kept complimenting it all evening, and if you know my husband and how he feels about my knitting, that's a really big deal!

Those are the most beautiful nups I've ever seen on a swallowtail shawl! You managed to capture them beautifully in that photo.

I love that shade of blue, too.
