Notes

2020-09-12

Inspired by legaleagle’s shawl, I headed to my LYS to get yarn. Found some Meadowcroft Dyeworks that I think will work well.

C1: Pisgah National Forrest
C2: Harold’s Crayon

Finished Clue 1. Love how the yarn is knitting up.

2020-09-22

Finished Clue 2. Looking ahead, trying to plot how I’m going to place beads in future clues.

2020-09-24

Added beads to Chart E. Bead inspiration from plentyofyarn. I’m using my leftover clear beads from The Peacock’s Tale. I placed them in row 14, just above the cdd in row 13. Love how it turned out. I also placed one on the very center stitch of the row.

2020-09-25

Added beads to Chart F. Bead inspiration from MPGColorado, who placed four beads on each ornament. I chose to do three because of where I placed the beads on Chart E. In row 3, I placed the beads on the slip 5 stitches (1 & 5). In row 6 (on the wrong side), I placed the bead on the slip stitch.

2020-09-26

Added beads to Chart G. Bead inspiration from mswolpe. In rows 10 and 12 (on the wrong side), I placed beads on the stitch between the yarn overs in the previous row. I also placed beads on the center spine stitch in these rows.

2020-10-03

Added beads to Chart H. Again, bead inspiration from mswolpe. In rows 10 and 20 (on the wrong side), I placed beads on the stitch between the yarn overs in the previous row (like on Chart G). I also placed beads on the center spine stitch in these rows.

2020-10-06

Added beads to Chart I, using inspiration from mswolpe.

In rows 2 and 4 (on the wrong side), I placed beads on the stitch between the yarn overs in the previous row (like on Chart G and H). I also placed beads on the center spine stitch on these rows.

In rows 5 and 7 (on the right side), I placed beads on the stitch between the yarn overs. I did not place beads on the center spine stitch on these rows.

In rows 9 and 11 (on the right side), I placed beads on the ssk and k2tog that are between 2 yarn overs.

  • ssk: bead 1st stitch then make the stitch
  • K2tog: bead the 2nd stitch then make stitch

In the bind-off row, on the knit 3 into stitch - knit first, bo, then bead, then knit/bind off next two in same stitch.
