My usual pattern with a Mystery is to dive in enthusiastically, choosing colors, and dropping everything else when the 1st clue arrives in my library. But then, as with many of my eagerly started projects, I lose interest, fall behind a clue (or two), and eventually abandon the project. The up side – lots of repurposed yarn. Well, not the case this go round. As with her previous Mystery shawls, Romi keeps you on your toes. Each clue is a totally new and unexpected experience. Like Clue two (the asymmetric lace section utilizing short rows), the 3rd section has been totally intriguing. With a few ‘just knit’ rows to give me a break every so often (even though we complain about endless stockinette, who doesn’t like to just knit periodically), Clue 3 creates a checkerboard pattern with a series of passed stitch rows. Very pretty! And the pink and blue are working together perfectly. All in all, a fun one. Thanks a bunch, Romi!
Clue 3 finished with three days to spare. What to do with my time? Hmmm? Ha! Won’t be a problem for this over committed knitter. Off to my overflowing WIPs hiding place. Cheerio!
