Icarus is finished!
(as of around midnight last night)
Now for the blocking.


Tuesday, August 07, 2007

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.

I love the way it is looking though. I can't wait to see it finished and blocked!
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.
