Icarus To Be
I got quite a bit done on writing the pattern for Scheherazade (didn't even have to look up the spelling that time) yesterday, but the rough draft of a pattern isn't very interesting blog reading. Instead I'll show you a bit of stash enhancement and the parts of a shawl to be. This is going to be Icarus (I think its in the Summer 2006 IK). The yarn is Colinette's new Parisienne (laceweight kid mohair that can be substituted in any Kid Silk Haze pattern) in the New Storm colorway. I'm going to use the beads you see below the yarn, and the little bowl came from the bead store. They have a wonderful selection of tiny bowls to put your beads into so that your cat can get to them easier. I thought Ramius deserved a tiny bowl to knock beads out of, don't you think?
