Spoiler Alert!

Ok, I couldn’t resist posting pictures of the mystery shawl in progress – it is one of the most interesting things I’ve ever knit.  The cast-on was unlike anything I had to work before, and was pulled out after a couple of rows, which allowed the fabric to separate to show off this strange spinal column forming down the center of this shawl.  I love it!


I was really hesitant with my color choices.  I needed about 350 yards of three different colors in fingering weight.  I thought I could stash dive for it, and it would be easy and helpful and the quote&quote responsible thing to do.  I tore apart my stash (literally) to find all of my fingering weight, and then started combining them to find a good match.  Nothing seemed to work, and I was really upset.  And then I thought about going to the yarn store for one skein to tie two others together, and I was really excited.

Later that day, I turned on all of the lights in my stash room and compared a few skeins again.  I ended up deciding that three of them actually do go together in a peculiar fashion.  Knowing how Stephen West likes to combine colors, I thought I would give it a shot to see where it ended up.  What’s the third color, you ask?

I can be mysterious, too.
