Swallowtail Shawl

Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark
Interweave Knits - Fall 2006

Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill - Suri Alpaca laceweight
50 grams/437 yards (less than one skein)
color: Green Mountain Madness
purchased half-price ($13.00) at Knitting Emporium

Needles: size 4 bamboo circular

This is my third Swallowtail. I love the pattern and have loved everything of Evelyn Clark's that I've knitted so far. I wasn't sure how the coloration would work with lace but just really loved all the colors in this colorway so much! I stretched it out as much as I dared. Because of this, the colors don't seem as strong as they did in the pre-dressed 'blob' stage. Still I think it's quite nice. Maybe I'll be able to part with the next one. How many do I really need?
