Swallowtail











Started 4/10, finished KNITTING 4/28. Blocking? yesterday. About 600 yards 2 ply Falkland from FatCatKnits, #5 Bryspun needle. Added 1 set of repeats to the budding lace but it is still only 60" x 32" fully stretched. A perfect size for those of us at the head of the line when short was being passed out. Not fond of the nupps, they barely show up on the variegated yarn and really consimed yardage. The yarn story is a few posts back (sorry no idea how to link it). Pictures taken on the ever helpful overgrown boxwood in the front yard. It used to be a Pomeranian topiary but alas neglect has taken a toll.
We have been without reliable internet since the big rains so hoping to get this in before it vanishes again. Stayed home for Comcast yesterday, no show but a couple very polite calls. Waiting again today.

Fantastic! That was fast work. Also, meant to say that the rainbow yarn is so beautiful.
The boxwood had to grow the way it did so Mike could have a nesting spot!

Wow, that is really gorgeous! Love the colors. And you can add me to the list of "in the line for short." :-)

That is beautiful!

I also read about your Comcast internet service and about our tech not showing up - Sorry about that.

I hope everything is okay now with your service. If this is not the case, please let me know. I will be happy to reach out to my contacts to get this resolved for you.
