Swallowtail finished

Another FO here at Librarian Knits!!

Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl from Fall 2006 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Joseph Galler Prime Alpaca - ivory? natural?
Needles: Size 4 Inox 24" circulars

I had a few problems getting started with this pattern. I haven't knit much lace, and at the beginning I didn't know what it should look like. So, when I screwed something up, I would end up ripping back two or three rows... Once I got a rhythm though, it was smooth sailing, and a pretty quick knit.

Up next - the finished baby blanket!!
