New Shawl Pictures

Blogger seems to be cooperating today, so I'll post pictures of my beginnings on the Swallowtail Shawl (which I mistakingly called Scarf in my last entry).

It really is much prettier in person; the colors are really subtle, but enough for interest. No pooling because the colors are very short. I'll do closeups when I finish which shouldn't take too much longer. I'm already nearly to the Lily of the Valley charts. It's working up quickly and I love it.

Still no blocking wires. I'm going to have to call Knitpicks and ask them to send me replacement wires if they don't arrive before Friday (especially if what I ordered yesterday shows up before the wires do). Again, *sigh*

Gorgeous! Hope your blocking wires show soon. They are on my list as a birthday gift to myself.

Oh, that is stunning! Sigh - another thing to add to my lengthy "to-knit" list.

I hope your wires arrive soon!

I had the same problem with the blocking wires from Knitpicks! Twice!!!!!

They were super nice about sending replacement wires, but then those got lost in the mail too... I think the ones that eventually came were the FIRST order, not the second. I think it has something to do with the shape or size of the tube they send them in...

Good luck!
