I finished Icarus a few days ago. I love this shawl. The first chart was a bit boring to knit. But oh that border, how I adore that border!! The Malabrigo Lace was lovely to work with. It blooms a bit as you knit. So far though, no pilling at all. It is wondrously soft. This shawl will be heavenly to wrap up in during those frigid winter days. But for now, in the 90+ degree summer heat it will sit in my drawer.
Indulge me in a few photos.
