I'm hopping again! This time I pulled out my Periwinkle laceweight in those gorgeous shades of blue. I never did find a shawl pattern I like more than Icarus, so I decided to try it out to see what happened. The BBF laceweight is perfect for my new project--all I did was graduate up from a U.S. size 3 to a U.S. size 4 needle. I think I'll make fewer repeats through the main body of the shawl to make up for the larger needle. I definitely want to have enough yarn to finish the border!
FYI, I'll be incommunicado for most of the next 3 weeks, because my homeroom class and I are going on a media fast which unfortunately includes the internet. I'll post updates when I can!
