That is gorgeous.  I like the sheen of the knitted product...it reminds me of hematite!

THANK YOU!!!!  I'm so happy everyone likes it too.  I'm so proud of myself!

Yes, I used a heavier weight.  It's my own handspun yarn and when I was done spinning it, I measured it and did some quick calculating.  I figured out that I'd have enough to make Icarus.  As it turns out, I only had about 10-20 yards to spare.  I was getting really nervous toward the end!

Yes, I think it looks like hematite too.  It's a merino/silk blend from Ashland Bay and they tend to take on a real shine.  They have one colorway that's called "Pewter" and it looked just like spun silver on my wheel!  I'll have to get myself some more of that to spin and maybe tackle the Swallow Tail shawl from IK's Fall 2006.  ;-)

I think I fall in love with it and want to have one for myself. The problem is I don't know whether I have the patient to finish it. The needle size is very intimidating  Undecided

Aw, just jump right in!  There's no rule that says you have to work on it straight through.  Just take good notes so that you can set it down for a month if you get sick of it.  Then you'll be ready to just pick it up and run with it when ever you feel like it.
