Swallowtail Shawl Too.

Hey everybody! I'm still here. I'm just really busy doing fun things like rock climbing, camping, ballet (oh and working), so I don't have much time to post to my leetle blog. Add to that the addiction beauty that is Ravelry and you have no blogging by Amanda at all.

However! I do have an FO to report. I finished another Swallowtail Shawl. This one is for my sister.

Swallowtail Shawl.
Yarn: Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud in Midnight Heather
Amount: 50grams
Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl IK Fall 2006
Needles: US3
Started: July 2007
Finished: August 2007
I used every last bit of yarn in the skein on this shawl. I increased the number of repeats on the budding lace to 19, but ended up having to shorten the ending because I was running out of yarn. I probably would have been just right with 18 repeats, but then I would have had to fudge the lily o the valley lace portion of the shawl.
The Point.
Pretty pretty lace.
Eric obliged in taking a couple of photos of me modeling the shawl...
I think I was telling him to back up. Haha.

I will be sending it off to my sister shortly and I'll have to ask her to model the shawl herself and send me the pictures.

As for current knitting I have a couple of things on the needles, including more lace and leg warmers. :) I'm also swatching for an Indigo Ripples Skirt. Fun stuff.

Oh and here are some more pics from camping. We came across a lot of critters on this trip.
Lizard with Turquoise Spots.
Jedi Kitty.
Maybe pictures of climbing next time! Night night for now.

Oh Hai.

I have been busy and thusly not posting on this here blog. Ah well. Such is life.

Eric moved out to Cali. But he is 3 hours away. So we have been taking turns on the weekends to drive to each other. Last weekend, I went up to see him and we camped in Sequoia. The weather was gorgeous in the mountains. Thank goodness, because it was 107F in the valley. Sweltering!
Pretty waterfall.

I have been knitting my sister a Swallowtail Shawl. I'm halfway through the second lily o the valley lace pattern. And holy cow is it taking forever. Millions of navy blue loops. The things I do for my sister. :) Pictures of knitting eventually... I've come to realize that it is hard to take good pictures of dark lacey-ness.

OH! And my sister got married. Haha... small detail. It was beautiful and she was stunning. It was an all around good time. Here's a picture... all dolled up for the big event:
Bridal Party. Wee!

Until next time!!!
