Notes

Doing two colours.

Starting with clue 1A. Which has a starter shape I’ve never done before.

Bit concerned my yarns are too high contrast, but this whole shawl is a MYSTERY! So I will carry on… Also not sure of the contrast in fibres… Oh indecision!

2B for the second clue! Loving the stripes and the garter stitch…

3B for the third clue

4B… Took a while whilst I worked on other projects!

5B… Finally started on Mon 17th, one week after clue was released. Chose B as I’ve never done a knitted on edging before. Using the written instructions as the charts scared me! Working out well… But think I’ll be a while!

As predicted… It has taken me ages!!! And I ran out of yarn… Finished with some black 4ply… Not perfect but it’s done.

Other good looking combos as seen in spoiler thread:
