The stockinette-stitch body of the Icarus Shawl.
I knew what I was getting myself into after looking at the charts and photo. I’m knitting this for someone else, who only likes a little lace. Knitting with the recipient in mind, I think the edges/end of the shawl offer just the right amount.

Indulge me as I stretch out the knitting to show you I’m finally at the good stuff.
My inspiration to finish? Joyousknits finished Icarus Shawl here. It’s gorgeous!

  1. Yes, yours and Joyousknits’ shawls are beautiful although the colour is different.

  2. it’s turning out gorgeously! I just want to reach out and feel it.

  3. What a pretty color! I think I was drawn to this shawl because it wasn’t ‘too lacy’ as well. We’ll just have to forget about the st st bits! 🙂

  4. Love the rich shade of your Icarus.
