"When I am king, you will be first against the wall."

Finished object report:



The loverly Icarus Shawl from the most recent Interweave Knits. I used Zephyr (50% merino, 50% silk) by Jaggerspun in Cinnabar. I am extremely impressed with yarn; boy howdy, can it take a beating. I aggressively, nay, fiercely blocked this puppy. The results are superb, a drapey, ephemerally soft garment with a hint of shine. Tre jolie!

Fabulous! I need to venture into shawl knitting but my ADD pulls the other way.

Glad to see you update!

Gorgeous!

It's stunning! I'm knitting mine in Misti Baby Alpaca, but those endless repeats of Chart 1 are driving me batty!
