Dueling Shawls




Warning: there are WestKnits Mystery KAL spoiler photos in this post!!
 
Last Sunday, I was determined to finish the short-row section on my Color Affection. It took the better part of the afternoon, but I did it! I am now working through the final rows of the edging...and it's taking forever, not surprisingly. I am determined to get this off my needles before the month is out so I can spend August making a birthday present for my nephew and finishing both socks I have in progress (and maybe, just maybe, finish the designs I've been ignoring for several months, too). It's definitely at its least photogenic stage, and it appears as though I may have gotten carried away and did some additional increases. The only way to know for sure is to finish it!
Color Affection: Getting close!
Meanwhile, the WestKnits Mystery Shawl rolls on. I finished Clue #2 last night, just in time for Clue #3 to hit my inbox today. I have a hard time imagining where we'll go from here, and unfortunately, the needles I'm using aren't quite long enough to give you the full effect:
Mystery Shawl: Halfway through Clue #2
What you can't see in the above photo is the nightmare of ends lurking behind all of the pretty intarsia. I think I'll try to tame them this weekend before I get too far along on Clue 3:
I am really happy with my color and yarn choices, and I think the pattern is interesting, even if it's not something I would have gravitated to on my own. However it turns out, I'm sure it will come in handy once winter rolls around!
