Start date: October 30

I think this was one of the fastest knits I have ever done. From start to finish, it was just over three weeks. I think the fact that the pattern was so easy was such a help to me. After the first day of knitting, and first pattern repeat, I didn't have to refear to the chart again until I was on Chart 2. I did find a bunch of mistakes in my work after I was done with this, snags that didn't block out, SSK and K2togs that were backwards, but I am not going to let them bug me, and nag at me, keeping me up late at night any more.
I did let C help me unpin in Friday night, and he had a blast pulling up all the pins. I guess that means that I can't do any major blocking while he is awake or around.
The shawl did keep me nice and warm in the chilly banquet hall where R had her wedding (which was so beautiful!)
I did cast on for PFS on Wednesday night, and I am on chart 4 right now. This was taken 24 hours ago when I was just starting chart 3. So far PFS is a lot of fun, and I can see myself knitting another one for me. I do hope it doesn't turn out as large as Icarus, since D is so tiny
