Hi everyone! I'm Marie and this will be my first shawl. I was so excited about this pattern that I cast on as soon as I got home from the lys with the magazine and the yarn. Like Sarah, I'm also using Misti Baby Alpaca, though in the sea foam colorway. It's a lovely pale blue with a ting of green...somewhere between robin's egg blue and pale, pale teal. The color is actually a bit more intense than my camera was willing to replicate but in any case, here is my Icarus thus far: (don't mind the red thread that is my lifeline...)
I've made it to row 27 of chart 1 with only a slight mishap in stitch number (turned out I had just skipped a row, not forgotten to do a few YOs...). I'm really enjoying the knitting so far and am quite enthralled with how soft the yarn is. Immensely pettable.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's progress!
