Finally, a Finished Object-- woo hoo!

I am happy to say that I finally finished the Fall '06 Interweave Knits Swallowtail shawl. Those "bobble-ettes" really gave me a tough time. Patricia had the brilliant idea to forget all of those yarnovers, since P5tog simply was not happening with the delicate yarn and addi turbo combo.

I ended up knitting in the front, back, then front again, and on the wrong side P3tog. I messed only one up. What a relief. So, I ended up with nupettes, and that's just fine with me.

the final blocked size was a happy surprise

I would actually make this again, and would stick with the nupettes versus bobblettes. I would also definitely use a lifeline more rigorously than I did this time. It just makes good sense!

I have no idea what any of that meant, but it sure looks pretty!

Absolutely stunning. Nice job! Remind me again the yarn you used?

I used a laceweight merino (I'll have to check and see what it's called tonight at Knit Night). But, it was a lovely laceweight merino and I used it double stranded.

I wanna say it's called Mugee...but let me double check that...
