Back in Action with Icelandic Lace

After getting to the blue border of the Icelandic Lace Shawl, I realized that one of my colors was off. I substituted the darker pool for the sky that I had been intending to use. I think it fits in with the overall color scheme better but I had to wait for KnitPicks to send me the one skein of yarn. Now that I have it I am back in action. I only have 10 very long rows left!

In the meantime I started a Large Rectangle In Spider Netting from Victorian Lace Today. I knew that I shouldn't because I have enough WIP's. Furthermore, I don't even know why I want to make this shawl. It is very plain with nothing very interesting about it. Never-the-less, I started yet another project and am very much looking forward to it.

The shawl is looking really good. I think you have what I get, a case of "Start-itis" where all you want to do is start new projects. I have so many going now that I'm not about to cast stones at you!

I'm ready to do the 'happy dance' with you! Bet Icelandic is done, right?!
I like lots of the shawls in VLT that aren't too exciting... just gotta make them someday. Looks like you're using exciting yarn. :)

The shawl looks lovely. I like the way you've used color.

The Icelandic Lace is gorgeous--and so is your hair, by the way!
