I can not begin to tell you guys how puffed out my chest is with pride right now. The Icarus shawl is blocking and well... it's stunning. I can't believe I'm going to give it away!
I'm pretty sure that this is my very favorite thing I've ever knit. Ever. I love the yarn (malabrigo sock) and the colour is a warm, autumny, rusty, red colour. Oh, and did I mention it's HUGE!? I haven't measured it yet, but that's my queen size bed you see it on in the first photo! Blocking wire would have been helpful on this one. lol
Edited to add: 70 INCHES ACROSS!
Oh, and I made an awesome carrot soup for dinner too, so watch out world! I'm on a roll!!
