FO: Icarus Shawl

October 3, 2010

It can be mind boggling how long a lovely full sized shawl knitted from essentially thread yak-silk can take to make, and yet how pretty the final out come can be.  The beige of the yak fibre is elegant, the silk gives it some shine.  Miriam’s Icarus pattern is beautiful, as countless people who have knit it so manytimes have proven over and over.  I think this shawl turned out beautifully, and I have the perfect summer dress to wear it over next year, when I can fit into it again!

    The yarn must feel as soft as a breath of air on your skin. The shawl will look great on you no matter your size!
