Icarus

I present to you a finished Icarus! Valerie lent me blocking wires, and I must say I love them. Icarus measures 67" across and 37" down the center.
Preblocking:


After blocking and close ups:




Now, what lacey goodness shall I do next?

Me loves Icarus.

And it's wheel spinning, but I do spindle occasionally.

Love it. Love it.

Next lace....hmmm....How about the Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style? (I'm just saying this cause I want to see another one knit!)

Artsygal yarn is pretty!

I am SOOO in love with that shawl!!! What yarn is that?? It also looks fairly easy! I wonder if the lace pattern is easier than the swallowtail?

It's just gorgeous. I sit here in admiration. I know that sounds like sass, but I mean it. It's so so pretty!
