It took months of knitting and at least a half dozen false starts to get this thing done but it was all worth it. According to my knitting journal I started this on October 19, 2006 and I was done as of April 25th, 2007. To be fair I did put this project down for most of those months but it was still a time intensive project.

The only mod I made was to use size 4 needles instead of 3. With only 8 rows left to go I ran out of the Grape Jelly color of Knitpicks I was using and I ended up having to use some blue I had to finish it off.

It is lovely.  Using the blue has ended up being a 'happy accident', because it has worked so well.  All that effort has paid off handsomely.

Ooh, lovely!

I started my Icarus in October 2006, too, I think... but I have been ignoring it way too much, and I still have one more repeat of the boring part to do before I get to the second and third charts. Gah! I will persevere. Yours is so pretty -- it will be worth it once it's done!

That's beautiful! The blue usage is a 'happy accident', like j_en said.
Looks fantastic!
