Mystery KAL

I´m attending a Mystery KAL for the first time in my knitting "career". KAL means knit along and is a group of people knitting the same pattern at the same time. Mystery KAL is when you don´t know how the finished project is going to look like, since you receive the pattern in parts, for instance one clue every week.

My first Mystery KAL is called 22 leaves by Lankakomero and is great fun. It´s going to be a shawlette. The only thing is the pattern is revealed too fast. Five clues in three days. I would have liked a little bit more excitement. Otherwise it´s great! I´m halfway through clue #5, but the picture shows clues 1-4.

More magic!

I have said it before, knitting is magic! Just look at these two pictures:

The secret is yarn made of wool and a washing machine.

Starry Shetland

Another shawl is off the needles and I think it´s the most beautiful shawl I´ve ever made!! The pattern is Shetland Triangle Lace Shawl by Evelyn A. Clarke and the yarn is Handmaiden Fine Yarn Sea Silk. It is made from silk and plant fiber and has a fantastic lustre and softness. The colour is called Stardust. It´s a match made in heaven!

It´s really hard to capture the true colour with my camera, hence the different shades of this gorgeous bluish grey in the pictures.
