So, yeah, I’m really loving the Swallowtail shawl in zitronengelb Tausenschön yarn. The color isn’t quite solid but ever so slightly variegated — lovely hand-dyed goodness — which makes the lemony color slightly less vibrant and a bit more subtle. Or something. The pattern is zipping along, the needles [US8] and yarn [sock weight] are producing a nice squishy fabric, and I’m in lurv. Which is how you’re supposed to feel when knitting up a wedding gift shawl, right?
