Knitting Confectionary


Yum! Looks so much like cotton candy that I have to resist taking a bite. The pattern is Swallowtail, (Interweave Knits, Fall 2006)--a charming design from Evelyn Clark. The yarn is the Count 5 mohair I bought at Yuzawaya a few weeks ago--soft was goose down.

This confection is providing a much-needed respite from the incessant K3togs and P3togs in my Spider King. I had to rip out a row today because I read the pattern sequence incorrectly. That's the first actually tinking I've had to do, but it was a real annoyance undoing those P3tog stitches with a pin. Fooey!

Swallowtail is a great pattern. I just blocked mine today.

Dear fleegle, Your Swallowtail is so refreshing a color and very fem/fluffy. Reminds me of 50's sweater girls! Sometimes you just need a break from those kick-ass projects. I feel your pain at having to tink back those P3togs with a pin. Big Ouch!

I love the Swallowtail shawl. Seeing it with this yarn, it will be gorgeous! What size needle are you using for this delicate yarn?

I am using a size 4. I first tried a size 5, but I am not a fan of loose-looking lace.

Hi Fleegle,

I've been checking out your blog and have been meaning to leave a comment. Your knitting and embroidery is just beautiful. Thanks for the great tutorials on charting software and fonts. I've been using the information a lot lately.
