Yesterday I started the Icarus using Pacifica Zephyr from FurrYarns. I really love the way this yarn knits up. It's my absolute favorite.
This will be a birthday gift for my mother. She picked out the colour herself and I picked out the pattern. She doesn't really like a lot of lace so this is a really nice pattern for her.
I'm hoping this KAL will help keep me knitting till I reach the leaf pattern because there isn't much going on for most of the shawl. It is a really great pattern for me to take along on errands though since it's easy to put down no matter where I am in a row. It also helps that the yarn is a hand paint as the changes in colour keep it interesting.
I love seeing all the finished Icarus' here as it really inspires me to keep plugging away!
