Starts...

Did I mention I started the Swallowtail Shawl last Sunday? I'm using Schaefer Anne and size 8 needles.
Swallowtail Shawl Progress

The pattern claims to only require 437 yards of laceweight. Well, I'm using fingering weight and I've got 560 yards. My current plan is to run a life line after the required 14 repeats of the main pattern. I'm going to knit another 5 repeats of the pattern and then do the lily of the valley border. If I run short on yarn, I can rip back. If not, great, I can knit on. I want to use as much of the yarn as I can.

And also, I got a finished object picture taken on Thursday. Some scenes of the Sweet Life Knitters meeting can be found here. But anyways, this is the "Cozy V Neck Pullover with Deep Ribbing" from Fitted Knits.

It's really quite nice to know that I have some new clothes for winter.

Also, pictures from Stitches East can be found here.

I am glad to read that you seem to have completely recovered again. I am fighting with a bad cold currently. *sigh*
I could need such a Pullover as well. It is wonderful.
