I finally fnished my Icarus! I've posted pictures on my blog.
This took longer than almost any other lace shawl I've knit, I think. I began it back in July, but I got tired of all the Chart 1 repeats, so it got put aside for a little while.
In the end, I skipped the last repeat of Chart 1, because I thought I was going to run out of yarn. I used Misti Baby Alpaca, in black.
I'm really happy with the shawl the way it is, and it's still a good size, 77cm (30.5") down the centre back, and 155cm (62") across the wingspan.
Thanks, Miriam!

It looks fabulous! I used Misti Alpaca Lace on my last shawl & I definitely am putting their yarn on the "will buy again" list.
