My first post here, though I've been working on Icarus for several weeks now. I am finally into the fifth repeat of chart one, but progress is very, very slow. I hate to work only part of a row, so I don't pick it up unless I'm fairly certain I can complete at least one whole row in a sitting.
I do love the pattern. It is easy enough to knit without being boring. As I am sure you have all encountered, the rows are a tad bit LONG. Can't wait until it's done!
I am using Alpaca With a Twist, Fino, 70% baby alpaca 30% silk, color #0098. It is beautiful to work with. It is light and airy but has a nice weight to it as well. Very enjoyable!
