I finished Icarus, and I love it. It's the perfect size, it's soft, warm, smooshy and practically perfect in every way.
Pattern: Icarus, by Miriam Felton
Yarn: KnitPicks Shadow, in the Oregon Coast colorway
Needles: KnitPicks Circs US 3
Start to Finish: October 2009 -February 2010
Modifications: I used the mods Miriam posted on her blog for Chart 4 and the last 4 rows. Other than that, knit as written.
Before blocking: Shoulder span 59", Center drop 32"
After blocking: Shoulder span 81", Center drop 41"
I think this will actually be a very practical knit for me. I foresee spending a lot of time with this shawl. And now, of course, I have shawl fever. I'm eyeing this one for my next project.
