FO - Swallowtail Shawl or Mom's Wedding Shawl



This turned out better than I thought it was going to. It's final measurements are 60 wide by 38 at the tip. I did five repeats of the Budding Lace pattern as I had read on some other blogs.

As the title reads, Mom is marrying her Internet Beau in December (after a two/three? year courtship). How convenient that I was already knitting her the shawl

Oh, you look like your Mom! Especially through the eyes.

I am just dazzled by the shawl. Never, ever would I attempt such a thing. Kudos!

Are those the wire thingies you got at the welding supply place?

Forgot to thank you for stopping by my blog and your kind words for my FLAK! Can't wait to wear it. It is 100% wool. Very rustic--not your ultra-soft merino. I still can't contact you by email.

In this picture, the shawl looks as long as it is wide and that's not the case. Don't know why it looks like that except for my inferior photography skills!
