Now knitting

I have way too many WIPs on the go, but they're all different enough that it's nice moving between them. The Icarus is my pet project - I love the feel of the laceweight zephyr yarn, and it's nice to have a relatively simple pattern for the first part of the shawl to get used to working with it.

Four repeats in:

Icarus shawl, 4 repeats in

and progress blogged at the Icarus Shawl KAL

I'm also working on the Lotus Blossom tank, but am probably going to re-start in a solid colour and resume with the Heatwave I started a month or so ago:

Froggable Heatwave

I just think the colours and variagation work better in a simple st st. tank as opposed to the much girlier lotus blossom.

Other than that, I'm mostly working on stuff with holes. I love lace. I've never worn lace till now, but it's so much fun to knit, I can't stay away from it. Besdies the Icarus shawl, I'm also working on the little arrowhead shawl from Interweave's Web projects, and Hedera from Knitty.

Holey knitting

So many gorgeous projects you have going on! I'm totally amazed by the Icarus, what a beauty it already is! I love the pattern of the Lotus Blossom Tank - I suppose you're right to re-start it in a solid color, even though I like your version now a lot as well! Happy knitting!
