I finished! I think my grandma will love it. I really enjoyed this pattern - the repeats are easy to remember and easy to see when you're making a mistake early! It felt like it just flowed from my needles when I had time to work on it!

I want to warn those using Jaeggerspun zephyr in fuchsia that it bleeds:

my swallowtail

It's going okay. I'm on repeat #12 or so of the budding lace detail. I went out and got some Lace Addis today and that really sped things up. I'm using Hand Maiden Sea Silk.

I wrote two previous posts about it on my blog, so if you really want to see them here they all
are. The only interesting part is that I did four repeats in Cherry Tree Alpaca silk before I ripped them out and switched to Sea Silk.

I can't wait for this to be done!

I'm obsessed!

I'm making my very first Swallowtail, and I love it. I did extra repeats to enlarge it, so I'm just now getting to the first Lily of the Valley border. I'm using Malabrigo laceweight, in a candy pink color. I hope the photo is okay--I took it in a rush this morning.
