Icarus is done but for the blocking. I finished the knitting sometime last night. The cast off was fun (I'd never done this one before) but took a lot longer than I thought it would. I ended up adding beads to the patterned areas and along the cast off edge. Hopefully they will show after blocking. Right now they are hidden.
I hope to block this within the next few days and will post pictures of the finished shawl. In the meantime, I started the Swallowtail Shawl from the new Interweave. It's a breeze after the long rows of Icarus.
