12-22-17 - finally finished!

5-16-17 - started the bindoff! and quickly realized I just don’t have the patience for it right now… soon, though. soon. also, joined the third skein of yarn two rows back and I did the last double decrease - at the top of the chart - as written (the others - the ones worked in the garter stitch section - I worked as CDD)

5-14-17 - clue 4 done! I realized mid-way through that I had inadvertently worked a CDD between the medallions instead of Sk2p … thinking I might continue that “feature” for the duration … or at least through the first part of clue 5.

5-9-17 - happy to discover there were only 5 clues - so I’m not quite so far from finishing!

5-8-17 - pulling this out of hibernation to see if I can finish it before the 2017 mystery starts!

7-7-16 - finally started clue 4. still working the initial garter rows (hence the wine and the book in that photo), but yay! I added the 2nd ball of yarn.

6-22-16 - finished clue 3. I’m officially a full week behind, I think!

6-15-16 - finished clue 2 and the first two rows of clue 3. LOVING the pattern and this yarn.

6-5-16 - finished the first clue. glad I went with a solid color!

5-23-16 - and I changed my mind! helping Virginia choose her yarn, I decided to go with the Merino Alpaca, too, and a very wintery solid red.

5-18-16 - bought the yarn! have just 400 yards of each color, so I’m going to have to swatch and be careful this year. hoping for guidance about light/dark for MC and CC.
my 3rd year participating in the TTL Shawl Mystery…“charmed, I’m sure”!
