flying too close to the sun
For those of you who need details, this is Icarus from Interweave Knits Summer 2006. I knit it in bendigo 2ply that i dyed in Blue Lagoon colourway. I used 3.75mm needles and did the last couple of rows in a 2ply handspun i had knocking around from my handspun shawl because i wanted to anchor it a bit. I love the edging, it really made me happy when i saw the yarns together. I cast off a bit early, i still had 2 rows of the chart left and i just did a stretchy cast off instead of the four row edging in the pattern. i cant tell if theres any difference, i'm happy with it :) VERY.
I am off to play house with Othlon and her bro for a few days so i may be absent from the blog... but i hope not. the yarn fest ought to be documented, no?
