Lace in the sunlight just kills me.
Presenting the finished Swallowtail Schmawl! An exercise in determination…and loveliness.
Look at all those nupps! Have I gone back on my previous position on nupps and declared myself a nupp-believer?
Nope! But I have to admit that they do look quite elegant in execution.
I broke out my new blocking wires and blocking mats from KnitPicks for the occasion (courtesy of a Christmas gift certificate from my brother!), and I have never had a better time pinning something out. Meaning mostly that I’ve never spent less time pinning something out and having it stretch out perfectly. Which equals better. Of course.
Now somebody invite me to a wedding or an Easter brunch or something so I can take this thing out on the town! Possibly with a coordinating hat. Get to it!
