I apologize for my lengthy silence on the subject of the flawed Desolation of Smaug Shawl Mystery Knit-a-long. With my father’s unexpected illness and subsequent death, moving my mother into a nursing home, followed by months of debilitating illness on my own part, I have been afraid to say anything until I was healed and could give a definite timeframe for the pattern’s completion.

I am not healed. Tests are still being run and I have more doctor appointments upcoming. Intellectually and creatively, I feel better. Today.

I have an outline and the beginnings of a chart for a revamped Desolation of Smaug. I am tactile and a process designer. Thus, I design and write the pattern and chart as I knit it through for the first time. Perhaps wrongly, I’ve said nothing about this as I, again, have had nothing concrete to say.

I began this Desolation of Smaug Shawl Mystery Knit-a-long journey in good faith. I could not have foreseen what 2013 would bring.

I hope to have a completion before the Summer Solstice.

I have honestly done the best that I could with this process during a difficult, stressful time. I ask your pardon.

Thank you.
