Beau’iful plumage

Did I mention my Swallowtail Stole is done? Finished, finito, fertig?

And in just under four months, too. A time that could have easily been cut in half if the poor thing hadn’t languished in various corners. For no reason other than that I was too lazy to do a couple of minutes worth of math, to figure out how many stitches I had to fudge for the transitions from one chart to the other.

Either way, here it is, in all its blocking glory. After Python: African and Python: European, I present Python: Norwegian Blue. Beau’iful plumage!


Swallowtail Stole, based on the charts of Evelyn A Clark’s Swallowtail Shawl, 4mm bamboo circs. Yarn: LaceMerino handgefärbt from Die WollLust. Converted to rectangular shape and knit in the round following Marianne Kinzel’s Instructions for Oval and Oblong Designs from her ‘Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting’.


Ended row 5 of the Lace Edging chart with 560 stitches, row 7 with 700 stitches (70 scallops). Dimensions: 50cm by 140cm. (Much better size than the Big Green Monster)

Days left till deadline: 5.

Oh, I rock.

    ich bin echt neidisch auf deine sachen. vor allem bin ich neidisch, dass du es im sommer schaffst zu stricken.

    danke :) tatsächlich stricke ich im Sommer, wenn es so ganz warm ist, nur morgens vor halb 10 und spät abends, wenn es kühl genug für Wolle ist. die letzten paar Tage waren zum Glück ziemlich kühl, sonst hätte ich das Tuch auch nicht geschafft. wenn es so warm ist, dass ich nur rumsitze und schwitze hab ich auch keine Lust… aber ganz ohne geht’s halt nicht. Ich scheine ein kleines Suchtproblemchen zu haben.
