It’s A Mystery !

For some reason I’ve had a strong design to knit shawls and lacy things, and have casted on two projects to satisfy that need but I was yearning for more.

After finding out my dear friend Elseline was participating in a new KAL,  It’s a Mystery by Rosemary (Romi) Hill, I decided to take the plunge and join in the fun.

For this mystery KAL, Romi is using two colors for her shawl design.  After going through my stash of fingering weight, I decided upon a skein of  Springtree Road Muscadine Sock in Antiqued Rose (left) and Black Trillium Fibre Studio Lilt Sock  in Mist.

 

I caked my yarn and worked clue 1 and I really love the colors!

This KAL will have 5 clues total, each one a week apart.  As far as the design goes, this will be a shallow triangular lace and striped shawl requiring two skeins of fingering weight at 385 each.  I always love Romi’s patterns as they are very detailed and can honestly say that clue 1 contains very detailed line by line written instructions, as well as charts.

If you decide to join the KAL, be sure to take a peek at Romi’s Studio Ravelry Group, as well as the two dedicated threads for this mystery KAL – Mystery KAL Spoilers Thread and Mystery KAL Non-Spoilers Thread.  Also, this pattern is currently $5.00 but after the mystery KAL is finished,  the full, and completed, PDF  pattern will increase to $6.50.

    I remember having so much fun with my mystery shawl KAL last Spring, so I’m sure you will have a delightful time with yours too. It sure looks good so far. :)

      Thank you Karen :) I’ve been really amazed at the color combinations I’m seeing in Romi’s group – they are fantastic!

    I’ve stayed away from mystery KALs so far. I’m too nervous I won’t like the end result but your colours are lovely and that’s an intriguing start to a shawl!
