First to go stash diving to see if I had any sock yarn that would work. I needed between 410 to 430 yards in a somewhat solid color. The one yarn I had was some Temptation which is 80% superwash merino, 10% nylon and 10% cashmere I had purchased at Madrona from Abstract Fiber that was destined to be a pair of socks for Jim in blues. Not really my colors, so what does a girl do, she goes online shopping at Abstract Fiber for Temptation in a color she would wear. I seem to have a thing for red right now and that is what I bought. What is even better, Abstract Fiber is donating 50% of the purchase price of the color Red to the Red Cross to support Earthquake relief in Japan through April 30.
The first clue was posted last Friday. I finally worked on my shawl last night and this is what the first clue produced.
Today the second clue was posted. I have decided to wait until a few others have knit Clue 2. This way I get to enjoy their expertise and sharing of knowledge.
In other KAL news the Rose Stole is now half done. It looks like a lump so I don't plan to take pictures again until it is finished and blocked.
