The First Clue is Finished


WARNING:  If you are doing the Boo Knits Halloween KAL 2013 and do not want to see spoiler pictures read no further!
I have participated in a few mystery knit alongs and have not always been happy with the resulting end product so I tend to stay away from them. 
One of my favorite go to shawls is called Heaven Scent by Boo Knits.
When I saw there was going to be a Boo Knits Halloween Mystery KAL I gave it some thought before deciding to do this one.

The shawl is called Morticia and if you can keep up with the clues you will be done in time to wear it for Halloween.
I had 2 skeins of Madelinetosh silk lace that I had gotten back when Amy was first starting in the business and would come by the shop with a basket of yarn she had just finished dyeing.
 These two skeins of silk lace she had done as a special order for me.
And I have been saving them and decided now was a good time to enjoy them.
There will be four clues in this mystery KAL.  The first clue came out on Tuesday, October 1.
 Dru Ann was still visiting so I cast on after I dropped her off at the airport on the 2nd to help cheer me up.
Knitting beads and lace makes me happy, especially when it's purple. 
 The shawl starts on a US 4 needles and after the first three rows you switch to a US 5.
I missed that instruction until after the first repeat of Chart A so I switched to the US 5 on the second and third repeat of the chart.
I decided I would make the large so I did one more repeat of the chart on a US 6.

The clues are scheduled to come out October 1, 8, 15 and 22.
I finished with the first clue last night and the second clue came out today.
Perfect timing.
