Le Flambé du Pacifique [138:366, 24.06.2008]

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


I finally got around to do a photo shoot for this shawl. It certainly is becoming harder for me to think of a place to do the photos now....and to be honest, I'm not 100% satisfied with this shooting either. Oh well...I still think that the results are nice enough.


This is the first project I finished knitting using my own hand-spun yarn. Really proud of it.


The shawl might go to a colleague of mine, since she said that her Dirndl has the same colours. We'll see. ;-)


"Flambé" is French for the Scarce'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.
