Well, this is my first post here ever since I got access to the blog and I can also share my first FO that I knit with my own hand-spun yarn, too! Anyhow, I'm Elemmaciltur (some of you might already know me as Elemm). I'm living in Germany but I'm not from Germany. Been knitting for almost 3 years and have been spinning for almost a year now. I also do a knitting podcast called Knitters Uncensored with two of my friends.
Anyhow, let me show you my project now:
Start: 8th May 2008
Finish: 17th June 2008
Yarn: My own hand-spun - "Tahiti", merino optim from Chameleon Colorworks
Needles: Addi Lace, 3.5 mm - 80 cm (US#4 - 32")
Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark from Interweave Knits Fall 2006
It's the Swallowtail shawl knit from my own hand-spun yarn. Don't be fooled by the photos though, because the shawl's not that big. It measures to about 125 cm wingspan and 65 cm height.
"Flambé" is French for the Scarce Swallowtail...it's native to Europe and not the Pacific. I chose the name "Le Flambé du Pacifique" (Scarce Swallowtail of the Pacific) because the colourway "Tahiti". Besides, I reckon that the colours on the Flambé's wings also reflects the colourway of this shawl.
Here are the rest of the photos:
All photos were taken @ the courtyard of "Prinzipal" (the restaurant at Prinzregententheater)
Have a great week everyone!
