My current work in progress:

Roscalie Cardigan by Alice Starmore, knit from Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift¬† on a US 3 needle

Swallowtail

I’ve been working away on things unbloggable all day, so haven’t yet picked up the project I showed you yesterday morning, but here it is, as it was when I stopped knitting last night:

As some of you guessed, it is a Swallowtail Shawl.

I’m using Hand Maiden Sea Silk, in the Rose colorway, on a U.S. 5 (3.75mm) needle. I’ve got a 150-gram skein (600 meters), so I’ll be sizing this up from the pattern so as to make use of my extra yarn. The laceweight version of the pattern calls for 400 meters. It also suggests a U.s. size 4 needle. I went up a needle size because Sea Silk is a slightly heavier laceweight.

Now I must get back to it. Lucy has very handsomely offered to entertain you by striking a cute pose:

Look at those cute little legs!
