My progress is slow. But.. I finished chart one this weekend! I'm so happy. I've kind of assigned Icarus to weekend knitting only though since it takes me about 45 minutes to do two rows and I want to do at least two rows if I work on it. So next weekend the excitement of chart two awaits!

I finished my 2nd Icarus. Then wile it was blocking today my cats killed it. It was a gift......

At long last, Icarus is complete. I wore it to work on Thursday over an ivory sweater, and loved the look and the warmth - pretty good for a lacy shawl.

This is my Icarus. The picture was taken when I was still doing the repeats on chart one, but today I started chart three. I like this shawl very much, it's simple enough to knit when children are awake.

Yarn is from Posh Yarn, cobweb weight 50% silk 50% cashmere blend called Cecilia, colorway Memories.

I'm still plugging away - on the fifth repeat. The rows are getting so long - good inspiration to see Wendy's completed Icarus!

I finished it!

I don't know what to say other than "I finished it!" I'm so excited, I just took the pins out and tried it on and it's such a pretty pattern.

New joiner here.

I just cast on for Icarus on Groundhog Day. I managed to get to row 27 of chart one before i found a few errors and ripped the whole thing. Since then, i cast on again and am on row 15 of chart one now. That's it so far, but i plan to work on it tonight. I'll post a pic next time.

Did anyone decide to go with a different needle size? I'm going to read backward to see.

Happy knitting everyone.
