OK, I've changed my mind ...
So, although I really do plan on giving the Icarus shawl a try with said yarn, I will postpone it until I can really give it some serious attention. Instead, I will make myself a pair of socks with this Black Bunny yarn, called Parrot:
I absolutely *love* the colors in this yarn, and it's really soft. The fact that the socks will actually be for me will just be icing on the cake!
OK, back to work. (Oh, please, like you've never done personal stuff when you're at work!)
