Swallowtail Shawl progress

I am currently in the middle of the lilly of the valley border 2, here is my progress so far, I stopped it to do the summertime tunic but now
I am trying to finish this by the end of the month for a gift to my grandmother

I started on straight because that was easier for me, but now I definitely need to transfer to circulars so I can really see what I am doing, Ive had a heck of a time starting out with the nupps, this is my first time and I think I messed up the first row but not enough to frog it and well I never did put in any lifelines, silly me, will definitely do that on my next lace project, I gave myself such a headache in the beginning but the repeats are very easy to remember so all i well now, just have to push myself to finish this without starting anything else

I am so excited to get to eventually see this blocked!!!

  1. It’s nice to see that someone is moving along on the Swallowtail. I have frogged mine so many times I was afraid the yarn was going to fray into nothingness. I keep getting stuck on the curious double decrease in row (?) 11 that is something about skkp sl1k psso…
    I keep looking at it and it makes no sense to me. I feel bloody stupid, given that I have been teaching knitting for about 15 years now.
    So shoot me. But I refuse to be bested by a moth.
    So people do visit here, and I for one am quite impressed.
    Lovely pictures too,
