Lately I have taken to reading knitting blogs instead of sewing blogs. Don't get me wrong, I still love to sew. But I've found that it's easier to knit in 15-30 minute increments than it is to sew in small increments of time. So I knit. Enjoying it, yes, but missing the sewing, too.
Recently I came across Kirsten Kapur's blog, Through the Loops, and decided to jump right in with the my very first KAL (knit along)---the TTL Mystery Shawl!
Have you seen Kristen's knitting designs?! I can't even imagine how designers invent these things--talk about intricate. And breathtakingly beautiful.
I wonder at myself sometimes, to attempt a lace shawl pattern when I have such little experience knitting lace. And I don't even wear shawls, lol. (I always thought that only old ladies wear shawls, but from the looks of all the shawls on Ravelry, I think I'm mistaken).
So I am knitting a lace shawl. A mystery shawl, where the clues are given weekly, one at a time. I don't know what the finished shawl will look like, but I excitedly anticipate seeing the design unfold as I knit.
Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Findley, lace weight, in black
