We received a beautiful new yarn from Kelbourne Woolen, Meadow. They are introducing this lace weight yarn to the world through a mystery shawl KAL. It only takes one skein of this beauty. The pattern is $3.50 during the time period that the clues are being released. You can buy the pattern directly on Ravelry or in the store when you come in to pick your yarn. The first clue was released last Saturday, June 15. It was super quick. So, you can easily catch up this weekend, armed with both clue 1 and clue 2.
Many of us swatched to make sure that we were on gauge. Starting with the largest swatch and going clockwise, you are seeing Lois, mine, Terry, and Karin.
This swatch and seedling are Terry's beginnings. She chose Bergamot.
Fellow knitter, Jenn Almy, finished on last Saturday, hours after the clue was released. She chose Larkspur.
My clue 1 work was finished on Monday morning. I, too, chose Larkspur.
This shawl beginning belongs to the excellent knitter, Marsha Meeker. She chose Genetian Violet (so did Karin).
We have lots of knitters participating in this knit along. If you are doing it, please post a pic in the comments section here, email us your pics, or post it on our Ravelry thread. If you can stand doing all three, then please do!!! Keep checking back as we share this experience. Tips and opinions are sure to flow readily.
