Mystery Monday

Mystery Monday! That sounds so exciting! I have to say that it sort of is, but it really s more fun.

I've been participating in a Mystery Knit-a-long with my knitting group, knitting a shawl. Sadly, I am behind, but I have a shawl that is growing that I really like! The pattern has been released in 5 clues with the final clue released this past weekend.

This is clue 1 (click to enlarge the picture).  Cute little diamonds with some wrapped stitches in the center.
Clue #2.... It's a little hard to tell in this picture, but the second clue looks like hearts.
Clue #3 looks like some kind of flower to me.  The flower clusters are very lacy and were very fin to knit!
I began Clue #4 today but don't have enough done to make it worth showing you.  It doesn't really look like anything yet.  I'm using a gradient kit from Black Trillium Fibers.  The yarn is nice, it's their Pebble Sock yarn in case you're wondering.  It reminds me of Claudia Handpaints or Koigu KPPPM The colors look very blockish in the pictures, but it's not as dramatic in real life.

I'm hoping to finish the shawl this week, but it's getting pretty big, and warm, in my lap. The weather is supposed to be stinking hot this week so it may get put aside for cooler days or cooler evenings.  Stay tuned!


  1. Look how pretty that is. Just cast mine off the other night. I'm waiting on new blocking wires. This has been fun.

  2. I tried to leave a comment yesterday, but for some reason, on your blog and some others, I can no longer leave comments via internet explorer browser! I have to go in through my chrome browser. Anyway.... love the shawl - especially love the color! Purple is my favorite!!
