Swallowtail Shawl

Pretty!! Another finished project: the Swallowtail Shawl from Interweave Knits, done on US5 needles and using up about 400-500 yards of lace weight. I picked up the purple yarn in Columbus, but now seem to have lost the label so I don't know the brand, although it is definitely merino wool. I loved this pattern and the lily-of-the-valley lace sections! So dainty. The P5tog was a little tricky to do, but after a row I got the hang of it. I gifted this to a friend for her birthday, and will make another one for myself at some point.
