Yarn: Joseph Galler Prime Alpaca - ivory? natural?
Needles: Size 4 Inox 24" circulars

I had a few problems getting started with this pattern. I haven't knit much lace, and at the beginning I didn't know what it should look like. So, when I screwed something up, I would end up ripping back two or three rows... Once I got a rhythm though, it was smooth sailing, and a pretty quick knit.

I wasn't sure how this pattern would end up looking with a sport-weight yarn, but I love it. I like that it's not so big, and that the stitches are close... Altogether a successful project!

Your shawl is so sweet! I love the ivory, I am on my second Swallow Tail. After finishing my first one I ambitiously thought I would knit 3 more for Christmas gifts and keep one for myself. I'm just at the nupps and was having 2nd thoughts, but seeing your little shawl has motivated me to keep knitting!
