I’ve been working on the mystery shawlette from WendyKnits that is so popular this summer. I’ve been watching video podcasts for the past few weeks so I don’t have to use so much paper on the sock clues (for the Sock Knitter’s Anonymous Artichoke mystery sock) and it seems that most of the women I’m listening to are joining in on this shawlette. I can’t say I’m a huge shawl fan, but this one is done bottom up, so it gets smaller as you go and is much more manageable than starting small. I (and I’m sure many of you) get bogged down as a project grows and I tend to give up before I’m done. This one? Well, take a look and see. I finished the third repeat of Clue C tonight and I am LOVING the results. My yarn is actually quite a bit lighter than this picture, but I like the way the detail of the stitches is showing up in the picture. I’m using Regia Color 4 ply in a light neutral colorway. I’m glad to have found a project for this yarn- I wasn’t having much luck finding a sock pattern that I liked with the very subtle color changes.
Clue D comes out tomorrow- I can’t wait to see the finished product! After that it’s back to Artichoke. I finished sock one and I’ve had a bit of trouble with the pattern. We’ll see if it’s actually the pattern or if I just can’t read as I get into the foot of sock two.
