With a rapidity that's surprising even for me, I have misplaced both my notes for this project AND the magazine it's found in (which is a real PITA, as I want to make a re-jigged version of Bianca's Jacket once I work out the math), so only bare-bones details for this:
Pattern: Swallowtail Lace Shawl by Evelyn Clark, Fall 2006 issue.
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Laceweight (400m/50g), as called for in the pattern. I think I had maybe 14 or 15g left over to use to swatch for something else.
Needles: Whatever the pattern called for -- 3.5mm? I think that's it.
Date Started: May 18th, 2008 (late in the evening)
Date Finished May 23rd (at 13:15 in the afternoon, as noted in previous post).
This is the second time I've made this, and I'll probably make one more, if I can scrounge up another ball of this green colour (which is, honestly, darker and more yellow/olive in reality, though the colour in the pictures is really lovely, and make me wish the Real Shawl was this colour, too).
I blocked it just using pins and wires and eye-balling everything to get it even, and it seems close enough for horse-shoes.
One more view:
Amazing that the lilac colour is dead on, but the shawl still looks pale.
