Feast your eyes on my completed Swallowtail Shawl:
Look ma, no lifelines!
I'm trying to talk Donna into using this yarn for a super-secret project we're working on. Can't tell you about the project just yet, but the yarn is Toots LeBlanc merino/angora, and it is delicious! As you knit, it develops this subtle, gorgeous halo. Best of all, it doesn't shed. I know you'll think this is crazy talk, but it's true. I worked on this shawl several times wearing black tee shirts and honestly, there was no excess fuzz. Not cheap, but life is too short to knit with crappy yarn.
Have a fabulous weekend!
Beautiful shawl! I'll have to get to knitting on my shawl after I finish all the other projects, lol.ReplyDelete
That is gorgeous! You are SO right ... I don't mind "cheap" yarn, but crappy is a definite no-no, no matter WHAT the price.ReplyDelete
That is fabulous. Knitting swallowtail nupps made me crazy. Yours look great!ReplyDelete
Your shawl is beautiful and I agree Toots LeBlanc is the best.ReplyDelete
I missed this post when I was getting caught up. Your shawl is oh my goodness beautiful! I want to hold it! Those nupps are beautiful. I am going to go look at it again on your rav page now. :)ReplyDelete
NOw that shawl is FABULOUS. As in heirloom quality. HOORAY for the gorgeous finishReplyDelete
Gorgeous! Swallowtail will be my second "serious" lace project. I'm going to bead mine, a la Yarn Harlot.ReplyDelete
