My First Real Knit-Along

So I am on a few Yahoo groups and I don't really participate that much, but I do enjoy reading all the discussion about knitting. I tend to be pretty solitary when I'm in the middle of a project, and like to figure out things myself. However, when someone on one of the Yahoo groups pointed out that there was a mystery shawl knitalong called Mystic Waters, I just had to try and join. I found some great yarn in my stash. Actually, it's some of the yarn from here, my first ever blog post.

I wound the yarn and waited to see what the first clue looked like. It's nice there are other people out there to test the charts before I have my weekend to try it out! After I saw the first partially-completed clue, I fell in love and began as soon as I could.

I think it's beautiful.

Oh it is beautiful! I didn't see this KAL in time to join. I would have loved to be knitting on this, but probably it's best until after Christmas anyway. So much to knit & so little time, huh? Can't wait to see this progression on this shawl.
