This is my new yarn for the Nelkin Designs mystery KAL. While in Toronto yarn shopping Sunday I bought this yarn and I love it. It is the hand dyed sock yarn by Viola. I have only knit my gauge swatch but it knits up wonderfully!
I am working on Clue #1 which is to string on over 500 beads and cast on. As of last night I had 300 beads on....over half way! Tonight I will finish adding the beads and try out the lace cast on the pattern suggests we use.
Clue #2 is out now as well and from everyone's comments this pattern sounds a bit challenging. Lace knitting and I have not always been best friends so this should be interesting!
