Because I had to have another WIP.

Honestly, I did. I really needed more knitting. To distract me from James' socks and mum's cardy. Both not yet half knit and with a deadline of November 10th! Yeah right I needed another WIP. But I just couldn't help it. Inspired by brooklyntweed's beautiful site and beautiful knitting I cast on for IK's Icarus shawl (fall 05?). Because it's DK (the RYC I bought last week) and not lace weight I'm going to size it down. Hopefully this pattern should make good christmas scarves for a few select people!

However, since I forgot to put it away this morning, it maybe a big chewed kitten-spit mess when I get home...

That yarn is gorgeous! Hadn't thought to make Icarus in a heavier weight- that's a fab idea!

That is going to be great! I am going to embark on lace at some time..apart from lacey socks, that is!
