What Timing!

I wasn't around for it while it was a mystery knitalong the first time, but I have joined up with a mini-KAL for the Vernal Equinox Shawl, which, of course, started three days ago on the Vernal Equinox!

We're doing one clue a week, at least at the start.  I was hesitant to throw in with this because, though I love the shawl and want to knit it, I didn't think I had the right yarn for it, until I saw the (very) small stash of sweaters I've been meaning to recycle.  And voila!  I spent Sunday morning unraveling, skeining, and washing.  By the time I was home from work yesterday, everything was dry, and I wound one of the skeins and whizzed my way through the first clue.

Oh, hey, look, it's purple!  But a different purple!  A warm, rich mulberry.  It's also still a little kinky despite the washing and weighting, but I'm sure that will block out, right?  Right.
