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.
"Flambé" is French for the Scarce Swallowtail...it'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.
