A Proud Moment

I can't help but be a little bit proud of myself because I managed to successfully knit this:

This is the Swallowtail Shawl. (Pattern is the link at the top of the page) Since the first day that I joined Ravelry, I knew I wanted to knit this. Problem was, at the time I did not have the skills to even attempt such a thing! But, happily, I knit it (in 3 days no less!) and the weather is just getting cool enough that I can wear it too! I highly recommend all knitters to give this a go. You won't be sorry.

Now if you will excuse me, I'm off to knit something special for my bbf!
(that is short for best-belgian-friend)

All I can say is "Oooo Aaaah" & you certainly have much more patience than I. It's absolutely beautiful!

Thanks Jaimee! There is actually only one section on that shawl that was just awful to knit, but the outcome was totally worth it. :)

That is one intricate pattern my dear! It must have taken you ages to finish!
Show me what you're making for your BBF! LOL ;) :P
