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!
