In the Summer of 2006 I began to knit the Icarus Shawl from Miriam L. Felton's pattern in Interweave Knits magazine, Summer 2006 issue.
This is what it looked like in 2006:
I wanted my mom to have the shawl to celebrate her becoming a great-granny. I finally finished the shawl yesterday and mailed it to Mom today. It didn't take 4 years to knit, so many other things seemed to capture my attention along the way and the shawl was set aside to wait. A week ago I decided that I'd knit on it until it was finished. I am pleased now that it is done.
