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!
