It's done! Presenting the Swallowtail Shawl from IWK Fall 2006, designed by Evelyn Clark. I used almost 3 balls Le Fibre Nobili Taj Mahal (merino, silk, cashmere, 170 m to 50 grams) on size 4mm needles.
This is HUGE. I could easily use it as a sarong or a full size shawl, because the top edge is well over 6 feet, and the center edge is almost 3 feet. It's not even properly blocked!!!!
The lower picture shows the border, just to give you an idea of the scale of things, and to show those evil nepps. Instead of a P5 tog, I used a nepp-buster. On the previous row, at the increase point of K1, YO, K1, YO, K1, I did an extra wrap at the first YO. This gave me enough slack to pull that P5 off. Sorry-A Nepp is that little bobble.
