My Spire is growing! I finished the last chart of the body and now I'm ready to start the knitted on edging. Well almost ready. I have to make the yarn first. I am hoping I have enough fiber left to make enough! Yikes.
A few weeks ago when we were heading back from South Carolina we drove through Virginia. I had a knitting dork moment and was knitting in the car and announced to my family I was knitting with Ginny. The kids had no idea what I was talking about. Somehow I felt like since I was in Virginia and I was knitting I was in fact knitting with Ginny :) I was knitting a shawl. It was a Mystery KAL which I have finished, but I've supposed to keep it secret until May 2nd. Some people were keeping the mystery KAL a total mystery and I'm not supposed to spoil it. But I can't resist sharing pictures so......................SPOILER ALERT!!!!
IF YOU ARE WORKING ON ROMI'S "IT'S A MYSTERY" CLOSE THIS PAGE NOW!!!
THERE YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
FINISHED PICTURES AHEAD
Okay I hope I don't ruin the surprise for anyone. I for one kept the last two clues a mystery which was fun, but I do love seeing and chatting with everyone during the KAL. So I think I'd rather peek to be part of the group then keep it secret next time.
So here is my Mystery Shawl.
The alpacas had no interest in helping me out with pictures. But isn't the shawl pretty! Romi didn't disappoint with this pattern. I absolutely love it!
This was definitely not a mindless knit during the lace sections! But there were parts of it that flowed which was nice. I loved Manos Fino yarn and I have enough left over for a little project.
So I hope I didn't ruin anyone's surprise! But I really couldn't resist sharing. Especially for all the people that are going to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this weekend and are looking for a pattern to knit. I am so sad I am not going this year. It didn't work into my schedule :(
Hopefully next year!
Oh and some funny bloopers from my shawl photo shoot.
Strike a pose!
I use a remote shutter to take the pictures while my camera is on a tripod. Tiny claims he has magic powers to make the camera take pictures. Funny kid.
I'm joining with Ginny's Yarn Along.
