Icarus Shawl Knit-Along
I signed up for my first knit-along. We are doing the Icarus Shawl from Interweave Knits, Summer, 2006. It's also my first real shawl and my first real lace. I'm using Jaggerspun Zephyr 50% merino/50% silk. I love the yarn but it is so fine, I'm going to loose my mind and my eyesight trying to knit this shawl.
I did the first 27 rows but had to frog them because I dropped a stitch and couldn't pick it up again and get it to look right. I'll be more careful the next time. I'm going to try using a lifeline. The photo is what it looked like before I ripped it out last night.
