thank you so much for your Kimono Shawl compliments! The pattern was fairly easy and it would make a good intro to lace project. The only drawback is the length involved and how tedious that becomes …… which many would say is a factor in any lace project.
I have started another project which I have neither mentioned here on ye olde blogge nor have I photographed. Along with fellow knitters Ricki and Peggy, I am knitting a sampler using The Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee. To be honest, I didn’t anticipate getting all that much from this book — boy was I ever wrong! I would highly recommend to every knitter that they knit up one of these samplers. There is always something to learn it seems!
I have six more rows to finish Icarus. There are now 483 stitches on the needles.
So close I can almost feel it wrapped around my shoulders ….. so far that it may never get done. It shimmers like a mirage on my horizon.
If you can knit the Kimono shawl you can certainly finish Icarus. Just DO IT!
Go, go, go. Finish that Icarus!
I can’t wait to see Icarus — and I know that you’ll finish — but I’m so curious about this new project. Photos, please? Some elaboration — what are you doing and learning, exactly? Please.
I have always thought about buying that book but then I talk myself out of it. Glad to hear from someone who has read it/bought it that it is a must have.
Sending you good Icarus thoughts!
