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.
