The peach shawl is happily finished!!!
For many years I knitted traditional shapes like sweaters,skirts, dresses and coats.(At least, it was traditional for me [])

I started to see knitting on the internet 18-20 month ago, and I found many new beautiful shapes of knitting, what I never tried to make before(for example,designs for off the shoulder cloth like poncho,stoles, shawls,caplets and others...)

Now I'm learning to knit new shapes.This is my first tries to knit traingle shawl:

Very begginig:



One hour later



Tree hours later:




My hands a kind of clumsy with tiny stitches and thin yarn, after I made shrug with very thick and large stitches, but... a little bit of practice- and will be OK!
----------------------------------------------------

IT'S READY!!!!!!!!


i almost exactly followed instruction with SWALLOWTAIL SHAWL from ''Knits''( fall 2006) with a small modify:



it said:''repeate chart 14 times'' and I did repeate 17 times..(20 rows more). So... i made a big shawl. Even biger then I planed, but I'm happy with this size.

It must be ''23 from bottom centre point to top edge and 49'' wide across top edge,after blocking''.

My shawl size is 57' after blocking. Huge!!!

Absolutely gorgeous!

That would definitely pair perfectly with a little black dress.
