I'm Finished!

Icarus Point

Icarus Detail

Icarus Finished

I used Handpaintedyarn.com Merino Lace yarn and size 4 needles. This was my first lace shawl and first go at lace blocking. I was impatient and put a fan on it full blast and had it dry in just a few hours.
Luckily the weather has just gotten cool enough to wear it. Yay!

What color yarn did you use? I just ordered some lace merino from handpaintedyarn.com to make one for my Aunt. What were the final dimensions of yours?

I used "Pink Frost" Merino Lace, which apparently isn't available anymore. It is 33" from top to point and 74" wide. Thank you all for the nice comments!
