Icarus Complete

The Icarus Shawl I was knitting for a friend is complete! It knitted up amazingly fast. It took me just 5 weeks. Even with the summer heat of the past five weeks I couldn't put this project down. I truly hope that the intended recipient of this shawl will love it as much as I do.

All pinned out. I used lace blocking wires for the first time. Love them!
