FO: Swallowtail Shawl
I knit this shawl to wear at my best friend's wedding this past weekend. I made it larger than the original pattern, and I used silver-lined seed beads instead of doing the nupps. I love how it came out, and it definitely got a lot of compliments!

Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl
Yarn: Alpaca With a Twist, Fino (in black)

Glad you were able to finish blocking it before the wedding.
