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.

LOVE Icarus! That's on my to-do list. I clicked on your link to Mim's blog but couldn't find the info re: the changes. Suggestions? I've also printed off Citron and added that pattern. I'm so addicted to lace knitting!
