Swallowtail Shawl and Porcupine Stitch Scarf

Since I forgot to take a picture of the Swallowtail Shawl after it was blocked, I went to Louise's house and took the pictures above. I did not check to see what the dimensions for this shawlette were supposed to be. I just did what looked good to me. Also see above a couple of shots of an old scarf I made Louise years ago. It's knit in taupe coloured kid mohair with a stitch called "Porcupine Stitch" and is the same in the front and the back. According to the book, this type of stitch was used to make fluffy head scarves that were referred to as "clouds" because they were light and fluffy. I'm hard at work on the second Swallowtail shawl and still marching on with Mountain Pines edge.
Until Later!
