I've started a swallowtail! I made an Icarus shawl this year and am in love with lace. It turned out pretty huge and took me five months so a smaller project is looking good. I'm going to visit my grandma tomorrow and it'll be a gift for her when I finish. She loves deep hot pink so when I saw some halcyon yarn zephyr spun in fuchsia I knew it was perfect. I started this weekend and am looking forward to working on it on the airplane tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone on this knitalong whose advice and beautiful finished swallowtails are inspiring me!

It looks as if you're off to a very good start! That's a lovely color, too. :)
