Over the weekend I finished up my modified Cropped Cardigan. Yesterday, after a trip through the washer, and a little bit in the dryer (it is Cotton Ease after all), I laid it out to finish drying:

This is the beginning stages of the Swallowtail Shawl from IK Fall 2006. I'm using the Brooks Farm Acero I picked up at Stitches West a little over a week ago. Due to the weight change in yarn from that of the pattern, I opted to increase the needle size to US6s. So far I've completed six repeats of fourteen for the second lace chart. Thus far I am really enjoying the knitting on this!
