– I finally finished the Fall 2012 Mystery Shawl KAL. Mystery Solved! What a great shawl all the 5 clues made. It was fun watching all of the new sections developing with each clue.
Although the shawl pattern didn’t call for two colors, I used two colors for two reason: 1. They were the same brand and 2. Together there was enough yarn for the shawl. I am glad I made the large blocking board since it was perfect for blocking my shawl. See our Large Blocking Project Part 1 from out May 6, 2012 for instructions on how you can make one.
This was the first lace shawl I have knit. I am glad Q talked me into joining the KAL. I used the crochet hook method to add the beads. Q shows another method of adding beads if crochet hooks are too large for your chosen bead in our September 10, 2012 blog: Throw In A Bit Of Mystery Shawl With Some Tips! I wore it to a birthday party for my friend, Evie, who turned 90. I think the gnome is eyeballing the shawl with thoughts of taking it since it’s been in the 20’s during the night.
