The Mystic Meadows (by Anna Dalvi) KAL started June 1. However, I was holding out for the arrival of my "Iris" Whisper Merino Lace yarn from The Woolen Rabbit. I was convinced that yarn would depict a meadow to my liking, and it does. Despite using a light box for these shots, the colors are off. The greens are a wonderful late spring/early summer sort of gree, and the purples are in the blue violet range. I obviously need to work on the white balance of my camera...
I am on Row 387 of 425. I took a long hiatus during July and until this week in this project. Something to do with Tour de Fleece and having another cardiac cath done made me lose the mojo temporarily.
As I worked through the clues, I fell in love with this stole. Even DS #3 likes the stole and the yarn. I offered to knit him one, but he thinks shawls are too "girly" for him to wear. I guess I'll have to knit some Anne Hanson man lace for him instead.
Anna has been doing an element series of lace shawls also. She's done Mystic Light and Mystic Waters (before I stumbled onto her patterns), and in September, she is doing the mass test knitting of Mystic Earth. I've signed up for that KAL too, and am now scouting out "earth" yarn. I don't want anything flat & boring. I want something with depth of color.... up for suggestions.
