Mystery Shawl KAL

First, it’s a mystery that I thought I would have time to knit another shawl.
However, second, after you see this yarn you will see why I could not turn down the opportunity to participate in a knit-along with Susan Sarabasha’s, the Spinning Bunny, challenge with her design, “La Mer”.

There are two yarns called for in the pattern and I chose the colourway ‘Forest Lake’ in Panda (60% SW Merino, 30% Bamboo and 10% Nylon) and Donegal (85% BFL and 15% Nylon). All hand dyed by Susan, who I believe is an undiscovered artist. (Well, not totally – she does have quite a following; you can join us on Ravelry.)

Today I will give you just a peek at the beginning of my progress. (The pink pad is my beading mat; it keeps little mad beads from rolling away)

I am seeing the lovely design of a soft wave at the bottom of this shawl …

And the last photo of the day is a better look at the wonderfully mesmerizing color of this yarn.

There is one more row of the lace section before I launch into the body of the shawl, but baby booties are needed Now! My friend’s second grandbaby arrived sooner than I planned, so emergency knitting is called for the new arrival, all 7 pound and 3 ounces of him. Shawl update and Booties photos coming next week.

Happy Presidents’ Day!
