Just a few pictures of my finished Icarus:

Blocking really shows off the detail:


The yarn is Great Adirondack's Serino and the shawl used about 1200 yards. It's big and soft and beautiful and was a lot of fun to knit. I took it to my LYS today and the owner who sold me the yarn was impressed. I've already purchased Miriam's pattern for the Seraphim Shawl and am looking for the right yarn for that.

1200 yards? How many repeats of the straight section did you do?

That is gorgeous!
