I've been working as much as possible on the Icarus Shawl for my sister-in law for her wedding. I thought I would have finished by now, but I also thought I would have knitted a whole bunch more than I did while we were on vacation at the beach. It ended up I hardly knit at all. Only 36 rows left, but with the number of stitches rising into the 500s, each row is taking around 30 minutes to complete.
Then I will start on the shawls for the two bridesmaids. They will be garter stitch with a feather and fan edging. And smaller. And on larger needles. I hope I can get them both done by October 13th!
And now, I give you a picture of one of the unexpected wonders of having a baby girl:

So much cuter then baby boy clothes hanging out there. I know. I've now done them both. Those pinks, purples, yellows and greens are just too lovely hanging there in their diminutive state. It is a perk of a daughter that I didn't foresee.
