For the love of lace

After finishing my second Ishbel, which I'll be sharing with you shortly, I'm feeling more confident in my lace abilities. I was already thinking of knitting more of them this year, and I came across this group on Ravelry, so I joined up! Knitting ten shawls in a year seems like a possible goal, so that's the plan. I've got plenty of shawls in my queue; the only problem will be picking which one to knit first. Of course, I may have to have a little bit of stash enhancement to help me accomplish my goal, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice! I'm leaning towards starting my challenge with the classic Swallowtail Shawl from Interweave Knits, Fall 2006.

Knit Picks Gloss Lace

The Sterling KnitPicks Gloss I have stashed seems like just the thing for Swallowtail.
