Swallowtail

I started to work on this shawl when I was spending some days off at my parents' in summer. Between my stashed yarns I still have in my old bedroom I discovered Rosana. It's quite old yarn, I think my mom bought it about 20 years ago. For long time I had no idea what to use it for. And so I decided for a shawl.

I chose Swallowtail shawl. At the beginning I was little bit skeptic. The yarn contains some percents of wool, but I was not sure I would be able to block it.

After blocking I was little bit disappointed. It happened what I was afraid of, the bottom hem was not sharp enough. But in the end I was very surprised how well the shawl looked like.



When I wear it I feel like being wrapped in freshly fallen snow :-)

My mom loves it just like me. This means she wants a similar shawl from the rest of yarn as well... ok, I already have idea about gift for Mother's day :-)

2012

It seems to me the last year was shorter than others... I can't explain it's over now by other way. It's just like a couple of days since I've written the summary of 2011.

15 finished knitting projects
3 finished crochet projects
7 unfinished knitting projects

And the best thing made? Surely my Percy Shawl:
