Mystery Shawlette KAL FO!


I've completed my first real FO in a long long time. This pattern was really fun, and I enjoyed the mystery of not knowing for sure what it was going to look like. It turned out the be the perfect size for my daughter, and she loves it. Now, hopefully, she won't be stealing my stole (haha) every time she gets cold at the meetings or assemblies. yaaaay

the above link is to Wendy's FO post, but it's easy to find the rest of it

...and of course these photos are in backwards order - why does blogger do that? grrrrr

Giveaway Contest with WIP Progress

First things first, check out Sandra Singhs contest giveaway. A very pretty yarn hangs in the balance. =)

And here is my Wendy Knits Mystery KAL Shawlette progress.

This is what it looked like after the first repeat of Chart C

I am currently on row 7 of 24 of the second repeat of Chart C with one more repeat to go. Each one is shorter, though, so it's cool. I love how easy you get each line memorized while you knit it. It's turning out really pretty for something so uncomplicated (for lace) yaaay.
