Swallowtail & Shetland

I recently finished knitting the Swallowtail Shawl. I used 1.6 oz of silk of my handspun. I followed the pattern as written because I didn't think I would have enough yarn left, but thankfully, I did.


I have started on a new knitting project from some Superwash merino roving that I handpainted and spun into laceweight. It is a bit loftier than the silk and is at the lumpy, bumpy stage. Here is a picture of it smoothed and pinned out.


I am presently spinning some silk for the Heartland Lace Shawl, also by Evelyn Clark. I've completed 2 Clark patterns. And I have 2 more planned. I am so devoted to her amazing patterns. If you want to read more about my spinning and knitting process, please check out my blog.

Hi, Stephanie. Thank you so much. I am also a member of Spun Stitches. I posted there originally, but forgot to post here. I am lace obsessed and have a ton of forums that I belong to or read. I love getting inspiration and motivation to continue spinning to knit lace.

That's amazing. So variegated yarn can look awesome in lace--but maybe it takes skill like yours!

Thanks for the inspiration - I really must try some time.
