Icarus!

Finally, some decent FO photos (except for the background scenery of course). It's been impossible finding time for daytime photos.


Surprisingly enough, I am getting tons of wear out of this shawl (much more than I had originally thought). The silk makes it both lightweight and very warm for the chilly evenings we've been having as of late. As previously mentioned a few dozen times, I'm in love with this shawl. A 100% satisfaction FO.


Project Specs: Icarus
Yarn: Handmaiden Lace Silk in Bronze
Amount: 1 hank
Left over: 125 yards
Needles: 3.25 mm circs
Completed: July 10 2007
Modifications: None

Aside from plotting Icarus photo-ops, I've also been drooling over the Fall 2007 Interweave knits preview, and made some progress on both MS3 and the toe-up sock. Photos of those to come.

I always thought Handmaiden yarn was beautiful - and this gives me even more reason to need some desperately!!!

And yea you - I can't see a single mistake in your Icarus (and I looked in **all** of the places where I made mistakes!) - it's absolutely STUNNING!!!

Oh wow! I was just posting my FO and wondered how you had gotten on with the Handmaiden - it's going to be my next lace project yarn.

It's stunning - totally beautiful!! Well done :)

I love your Icarus! I saw it posted on the Icarus KAL, and I'm debating starting one myself. Yours turned out beautifully.

Beautiful colorway! I want some. And I'd like some of your cool enough to wear a shawl temperatures.

Your shawl is gorgeous. Great details, too. Been looking to see how one skein of Handmaiden Lace Silk transfered to shawl.

It is funny how an internet search shows more purchases of a yarn than FOs of it. Bravo!
