On the Needles – Friday, 8/21/15

First – if you’re doing Laura Aylor’s Summer’s End Mystery KAL and don’t want to see what the finished clue 1 looks like — close this page now — there will be a spoiler photo of my clue one below. ūüôā

I am still knitting along on the neckline/front band ribbing on my Featherweight sweater.¬† It gets a really wide rib finish – 3″ maybe – can’t remember for sure and I think I’m at about 2″ or slightly more but with 500+ stitches and fingering weight yarn, it takes a while to do a row.¬† I am hoping tho that I may get that finished off this weekend.¬† I still haven’t started blocking any of my other three sweaters.¬† One of them I may just start seaming without blocking – It’s cotton yarn and the lace I used across the front made¬†it really drapey and probably a bit baggy so it may actually need a bit of time in the dryer rather than laying flat to dry so I’m not real concerned about blocking that before I seam it.

I also am working on a pair of socks that I had started¬† — well heck I just checked Raverly and I never created a project page for them so I can’t remember when I started¬† – I’ll have to look on the blog later but they have been sitting around for quite a while.¬† However, as I was putting them back in my tote after my bus ride to work I felt a “pop”¬† – yep snapped one of my DPs so need to find where the other one is.

Okay — now to the spoiler of my Clue one for the Mystery shawl KAL.




You use a group of five gradient colors and then a background color.  This gradient is called Gingersnap.  So this is my first clue which has all five gradients used in it.  It decreases towards one end at an angle at the darkest end.  Now to wait until the middle of next week to find out what happens next.
