Let's get this started

Kessa and I are starting this knitalong in abide to see more Swallowtailers. Do come in and join us, simply by leaving your EMAIL in the comments.

There's no end date to this KAL.

On the topic of lace shawl designers, I really adore the designs by Evelyn A. Clark. My very first lace project was her Flower Basket Shawl, IK Fall 2004. I look forward to starting this new project and hope you feel the same too.

Edited 10 Sept 06
If you have not heard from us, it means we are not able to add you, cuz we do not have your email address. SO PLEASE LEAVE YOUR EMAIL IN THE COMMENTS. THANKS YOU! =)

OK. I'm game. You should be able to add me through the blogger - You can email me at nicole dot hindes @ the best email service ever gmail dot com - I love evelyn's designs also - although I've only knit her socks so far. But I think this will be a fun shawl.

I'm off to cast on!

I have been inspired by seeing this beautiful shawl. I went to the store on saturday bought the pattern and sea mist mist alpaca. This is my first time knitting lace. It started so well but I am now stuck :( I finished the 6th row of lace 2 and it looks beautiful but I am so confused on how to continue on. I don't understand at all the concepts of repeats.

Anyone's help would be appreciated. Thank you. I'm at jeremiah1300@mac.com and I'm Betty. Please email me with any thoughts about where to go next - I know I can't go across the top but how do I venture down the sides of the triangle.

I would like to get added onto the list. My email address is: allison.burba@gmail.com.

I am knitting the Swallowtail Shawl for a friend's Arkansas wedding in November... I have finished Row 7 of the Lily of the Valley Border, and think that it might end up really small. I am knitting it in 2 ply laceweight yarn on size 4 needles.

I am too far along to go back and do Pepperknit's recommendation for how to increase the Swallowtail. Does anyone know how I could increase the Swallowtail by doing additional repeats of the Lily of the Valley border?

Thanks,
Allison

gingerhopp said...

This has already been ripped out three times and I'm rapidly becoming a knotted nitwit.

I am at the end of row one of the 3rd budding lace repeat and find that I only have 7 stitches left. I started the row with 57 stitches. I have been placing markers after each repeat but still ended up short. Are all rows supposed to end up exact?

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Rita said...

Please can I join your group. I love knitting ,but I am getting stuck every time at the budding lace. I get to the 39 sts ok and the way I am reading the repeats for the next row I'm left with 45 instead of 43. I've ripped it out 9 times and getting so frustrated by this. O've been knitting for over 60 years and this is the first time I have had bother. Any help to sort out what I'm doing wrong would be so appreciated. Hugs from Scotland. Rita xx
