Swallowtail Shawl

The pattern was fun and interesting to knit, and the yarn is just heavenly.

Swallowtail Shawl

While it looks great with a tank top and faded denim shorts, I'm hoping to wear it to my niece's wedding next month for a touch of elegance.

I should buy some make-up too I suppose.

You'll look a treat in it, makeup or no.

I'm starting to believe that the weary, seen-it-all face on mothers is really the hottest thing going. Think that's too self-serving?

Tammy that swallowtail shawl is absolutely beautiful. I love the color on you and it will be lovely for a wedding. Congrats!

Yours is the prettiest I've seen yet. The color is fantastic; perfect for a dressier event.

It's perfect for a wedding. Make sure you get a family photo too as I'm sure this will be the most dressed up your kids will be (all at the same time) ever. Or if you're leaving them at home....enjoy...that's what I did for our last wedding. =0)

One Week- NO WAY! That is great.

That will be perfect for a summer wedding! I think you pull it off pretty well in your tank top & denim shorts, too, though. That ivory yarn is lovely. I want to reach through the screen and stroke it.

Wow! That looks gorgeous! It's much larger than I expected. That was less than one skein? I originally bought two skeins of Sea Silk for this one, but haven't used it yet. Perhaps I ought to reconsider.

You will look very elegant at the wedding.

It's gonna look great at the wedding and looks great even now with jeans. I am still amazed at your knitting ability (one week!)
