7-27-17 - added a very fun photo - I was fortunate to be knitting along with FOUR friends - and weโ€™ve all finished!

blocked it with wires along the two straight edges and pins to pull out the picots along the spines of the final lace section. finished piece is 44โ€ (picot edge) x 65โ€ x 81โ€ - pretty much perfect!

7-16-17 - done! (well it will be once it dries :-) I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shawl!

7-8-17 - finished up clue 3 yesterday and clue 4 today. had a lot of fun with the clue 3 mosaic - itโ€™s my favorite part of the shawl so far. canโ€™t wait to see how it ends!

6-23-17 - finished clue 2. smitten.

6-21-17 - cast on and worked clue 1 (photo taken with 3 more repeats of mosaic to go, but hopefully that will happen later today).

6-18-17 - swatched (on a 6)! looks like my gauge is spot on with just a little bit of pinning out. now need to wind the actual yarn and get started.

6-14-17 - I was explaining to my sister that I wasnโ€™t going to participate in this yearโ€™s MKAL because I didnโ€™t really like knitting (or wearing) two colored shawls unless they were Georgia Techโ€™s gameday colors. As soon as those words were out of my mouth, I remembered that I had white & gold to knit myself a new gameday piece for the fall. Never say never!
