FO: Swallowtail Shawl

Ideally, I’d be taking photos of this shawl draped prettily over a patch of soft green grass, or maybe a few of me wearing the shawl and spinning in circles on said patch of soft green grass with a bright sun shining in the background or something dreamy like that. But Daylight Savings Time saved me a smidge of sunlight today, so I took what I could get.

I’m very excited about this shawl for many reasons; it was my first lace project, it was my first time knitting from charts, the yarn is so soft and cheerful….. really I could go on.
