Christmas knitting is more or less finished. I still have to block my daughter's sweater, and my husband's scarf is still on the needles (but it wasn't promised for Christmas anyway), but I am pretty much finished. That feels nice. FINISHED.

I would stop and take a breath of fresh air, but a new project beckons. The Icarus shawl.

I have never made, bought, or worn a shawl before, nor have I had any desire to, that is until I met Icarus. I have already bought some beautiful Malabrigo Lace weight yarn for it, and I can hardly wait t cast on. I am, however, waiting. I will finish the scarf first, as well as several more rows of the socks I am working on. Casting on will be my reward.
