Garden Party Shawl WIP

Here is a quick picture of the test knit I'm still working on for Laura over at Just so everybody can see how far I've gotten on it and what it's going to look like. Of course her pink version is the bomb, but my gold one is not so shabby either. It just doesn't seem to be that big, but this picture is just a quick pin on the bed and not the fully stretched out end product. After 3/4 of the border I finally have the pattern memorized. Well it's about time, I think. I hope to get this done before the new yarn for my next KP project arrives, which should be here by this weekend.

Swan Lake

At long last, I finished the mystery stole 3--eventually deciding to make a symmetrical shawl with an inserted lace panel. When we visited my husband's parents this week, I gave the shawl to my mother-in-law:

There are also some blocking pictures and one shot of the shawl in action on my blog.

Beaded swallowtail

I almost forgot to post this! Here's my swallowtail shawl that I finished up about a month ago. It's knit from some bfl that I spun up myself. I also used beads instead of knitting the nupps.
Here's a picture of it without flash to show the beads. I couldn't get better pictures since my camera broke after this.
I absolutely love this shawl, it's gorgeous and I'm so proud of it since it's the first thing I've made from yarn I spun myself.

Here's a photo of my second Swallowtail. More on my blog.

The Melon Shawl

It has been a while since I finished my Melon Shawl from Victorian Lace Today. I had a lot of projects going on at the same time, so it took a few months to make. I absolutely love it and use it all the time.
