Weekend Away

Last Friday I managed to finish Chart 1 of Icarus while being stranded on a runway for a number of hours waiting for the torrential downpour to stop. That's right, all 178 rows of that puppy are but a distant memory. Can you tell that I'm excited?

Once I finally managed to make it back from a whirlwind one-day trip home, it was time to repack my bags and spend a weekend vineyard hopping, knitting and relaxing before starting the Law Society's version of summer school today.

All of this dedicated knitting time ensured that progress on Icarus continued at breakneck speeds. This is what she looks like after you make it through Chart 2.

My sheer glee at having accomplished the knitting equivalent of a few hours on the treadmill, combined with the lovely result had me a little photo happy. I began taking pictures of Chart 2 as it admired the gorgeous weather.

And, as it contemplated the view of the lake and trees of Toronto's downtown.

I also made some progress on Lucy but since Chart 3 is inching along, you'll have to wait until tomorrow for that.

The new Knitty is up and as always, it's well worth the click.

You Icarus looks great! I'm making progress on mine, but I suspect that you'll easily pass me and have yours finished before I reach the edging. =)

You're almost convincing me to start an Icarus...I've been trying to resist, but yours is so lovely I may have to give in :)
