Final Swallowtail Photos...

Here are the after blocking photos and some of the lace patterns up close & personal.... I have been asked a few times if I would do another and the answer is most undoubtedly... YES!

The close-ups show the true colour of the shawl......

It really is beautiful. I keep telling myself that I must do some more lace, especially when I see these gorgeous things....one day, one day....(insert big sigh here)

Beautiful! It is such a lovely pattern, isn't it.

The overdying worked a treat too :)

Wow! That's really beautiful. I seem to have a bit of an unreasonable thing against triangular shawls - but every time I see something like this I know I'm wrong!!!

And overdying was obviously the right thing to do -- the pattern really gets the attention it deserves this way.

I love Swallowtail. And I especially love it in your overdyed colour. What a clever thing to do!
