Nupp time!

Swallowtail is coming along nicely. So nicely that it is time for the nupps!

After reading the many posts on how small this sweet shawl is, I decided to increase the number of repeats of Budding Lace to 19. That seemed to be the magic number for keeping the next charts on track.

I am knitting this in Silky Alpaca Lace on Bryspun #4 circs. Since the yarn is black (yes, I know - I am crazy to do this in black) the white needles make it much easier to see what I am doing. And I do like the points. So far. We'll see when I have to purl 5 together.....

Here it is so far - looking like a yarn blob. And it is black, though the photo doesn't capture that.
