100_4067  I have finally finished Icarus!  As I told you before, I felt guilty about it having sat on the needles for so long – I started it back in April!  When I got back to knitting on it, it got done fairly quickly though.  I was pretty motivated too, and that helps a lot.  I got it blocked yesterday despite efforts by The Baby and The Puppy to get in my way and step all over the shawl.  It was hard to get good pictures last night as it was raining and dark outside, but I did my best and there are maybe two good ones.  Anyway, I am so glad to have this shawl done and I absolutely love it!!  It is so simple but so pretty!  I wasn’t sure about the yarn throughout the whole thing being so variegated.  The yarn is full of short bursts of color and I was worried about pooling, but I feel like they actually blend together pretty well and there are only a few spots of pooling.  I’m very happy with how it turned out!  Now my only problem is to decide what lace to start on now…
