My name is Sarah. I live in Arizona where there is not much of a need for knitted sweaters BUT shawls, now those you can use.

Here is the beginning of my Icarus in Misti Alpaca lace weight yarn.

She is destined to my Mom in Minnesota for Christmas.

The pattern is going along swimmingly, at least it was until my little boy (age 3.5) decided to pull the needle out of about 25ish stitches. However, I was able to get her back on track.

I am loving this pattern. Now that I "get" the body pattern, I should be able to knit it without a lot of concentration.

BTW, I am addicted to lace. I finally mastered lace on lace weight yarn so I feel a bit lost when I don't have lace on the needles in some form.

Looking forward to everyone's progress!

I did a double-take when the page loaded because I'm making Icarus in the exact same yarn and colorway. :) Isn't it unbelievably soft?

That's such a wonderful Christmas present. :) The shawl looks beautiful so far. I really like the color.

Mmmm.. Misti Alpaca.... that's what I did my original submission of the design in. It was so lovely my friend traded me a bunch of yarn just to have it.
