FO: Swallowtail Lace Shawl
I loved knitting this!! Especially with lifelines. They saved my hide a number of times.

Yarn: Silky Alpaca Lace
Needles: Bruspun Circs #4 and cast off with #6
Pattern: Swallowtail
Mods: 19 repeats of the budding lace (chart 2) and repeated rows 1 & 2 of lace border (chart 4)
