You know how every knitter seems to find what their "calling" is when it comes to knitting? You know, some are sock knitters and others are sweater knitters? Well I think my calling is lace shawl knitting. I don't know exactly what it is, but I seem to absolutely love knitting this type of project. Don't get me wrong. I do enjoy knitting everything else, but lately it seems this has been what is calling me. I am excited to share with you the latest installment on Icarus.
Look at the close-up of the lace pattern! This has actually been a piece of cake even despite working over 400 stitches per row.
Doesn't it look like a beautiful angel wing? This is what I thought when I laid it down to photograph.
So what's with the "uh oh"? Well I am ONLY 10 rows away from finishing this baby. Unfortunately I have run out of yarn. I got OHHHH SOOOO close to the finish line. Right now I am in a holding pattern until I hear back from the friend I am knitting this for about acquiring more yarn. I had a total of 720 yards and need only a squidge more! Boo Hoo.
