Finished with Chart 1 on Icarus!

I finished the first chart last night, and started on chart 2. Because C didn't want to go to sleep, and stay asleep, I only got a row and a half done, and I know I have mistakes in there.
No pictures yet, but I feel like I am in the final stretch. Only 52 rows to go! I can get this done in the 11 days I have left before R's wedding!

I also bought the stuff to knit the Peacock Feathers Shawl for D's wedding! Simpatico had a wonder Marino Lace weight from Italy that was $14 for 1500 yards, and this is finer than the Marino Lace I am using for Icarus. The pattern is on order, which is a good thing. If I got the pattern on Saturday, then I would have been tempted to rip Icarus off the needles and start on the Peacock.

If I don't go too crazy doing D's Peacock, then I am going to do one for myself, in a bright blue/color.

Trellis only grew by one row. I think I will work on that 100% when I am done with Icarus, before I start the peacock.

Thanks for the heads up on the broken link on my Lacevember post yesterday! I fixed it. Thats what happens when I do things too quickly!
I love Icarus. It is high up on my to-do list. I'm looking forward to seeing finished photos of yours.
