First Lace Project!

Well it's been awhile, but I do have some new knitting to blog about. I started my very first major lace project! I'm making the Swallowtail Shawl from the fall 2006 Interweave Knits. Here is the beginning of my progress. I pinned it down so you guys can see it, but it's obviously nowhere near done and therefore not blocked.
And here's a close up just to show the detail.
I'm knitting it using Colinette's Jitterbug, I love this yarn! I'm also glad I'm doing my first lace project in fingering weight yarn. Yesterday I casted on for a feather and fin scarf with lace weight and I'm really glad I didn't start with it!
