I’ve set my Boxy to one side temporarily because I want to give Jennifer a chance to catch up to me a bit in our mini-KAL. Since I won’t be wanting to wear it until well into next winter, I’m in no hurry to finish it. This is definitely a process knit.
So I started something new.
This is The Joker and the Thief — a new shawl design by Melanie Berg. I am knitting mine from a Sunshine Yarns kit in one of the many color choices put together for this shawl. It was no contest for me: I picked option #13, which has a main color of Charcoal, and the “Bag of Limes” gradient set.
The shawl is a very fun knit. There is nothing terribly difficult about it — even the “Indian Cross-stitch” which looks complex is actually quite easy to execute.
It is a very entertaining knit, even though it is quite easy, because you keep switching between the two different stitch pattern sections and work in a progression of gradients. I do love a gradient!
In other news, the last clue of the Outlander MKAL shawl was delivered yesterday so I finished my shawl. No spoiler pix here, but you can see my finished shawl on my Ravelry project page.
And as always, Loki supervises everything I do.
