I'm on a Roll

I can now work on Icarus a bit more. Madli is finished, nupps and all! I finished her a bit before midnight Friday. (Guess what I worked on yesterday? I'll show progress on Icarus on WIP Wednesday. And maybe a new WIP if I get my yarn.) Anyway, here she is:

Specs:
Pattern: Madli's Shawl from Interweave Knits, Summer 2004
Needles: Size 5
Yarn: Knit Picks Shadow in Jewels
Size: 19" X 62"

Let me just say that this picture was the best one out of about twenty and it still doesn't do justice to this stole. The detail is really pretty and the Shadow yarn has bits of purple that just don't show up. You can sort of see the nupps in the close-up, but the texture in the stole is so nice.

And being modeled by Lily Brown Bear.

Although I did enjoy this stole, the nupps got to me after a while. I'm glad that I finally finished her though! I'm very happy with the finished product. Might be a while before I attempt nupps again though. (There are only a few in Forest Path, so that shouldn't get to me too much.)

It's beautiful! The color is rich and lovely. Was it hard to do the grafting? That's why I'm afraid to knit her.

Wow - absolutely gorgeous! And I agree about the nupps. I really want to do Fiddlesticks Lily of the Valley stole, but after Madli and 5 Estonian scarves, it will be a long, long time before I do nupps again.

Very beautiful. Makes my tiny nupp undertaking (Swallowtail Shawl) seem puny. Now I don't have any excuse for my behavior - need to suck it up and get it done!
