Ready for Clue Two!

Here are the two different versions of Clue 1, Chart A, for the Anniversary Shawl. This is the one I am going with. This one is knit with size 4 needles.

This is the first one, which I frogged. It's knit with size 3 needles.

I believe that the frogged version is the way the designer actually meant it to be knit, but some folks, including me, are knitting it the other, more spirally, way. I think they are both pretty, but the spiral looks better in this ultra thin laceweight. I've seen some knit up in the orginal way using a slightly heavier laceweight and it looks really nice, like a chrysanthemum. Makes me want to knit them both! My spyrograph center reminds me of the sun. I can't wait to see what the Jojoland looks like when it starts to change colors. The colors just fade into each other. Very cool.

I forgot to mention that I did knit in public last Saturday. I took a sock to the Fireman's BBQ and knit after we sang. I have a GoKnit pouch in camoflauge for just such occasions as these! It even has a "don't shoot me orange" cord! Tomorrow, I'll be spinning and weaving in public. I'll be doing some demonstrations here in the Gap. Perhaps, I'd better get some sleep. ZZZzzz...

Ooooh! I like the spirally thing! Did you do that with *just* needle size? Or did you do something different to the clue?

You will LOVE the Jojoland...I just finished an Adamas in this yarn and it turned out great!

We miss you here in the 'burg...

Good choice with the spiral and needle size. I love how it looks!

Beautiful! Stunning! I hope you are feeling better after that bbq. I am in dyeing mode over here. Sweet Grass Targhee is my passion now and I had to add some to the shop. It is so hot here that I had the roving hanging on my outdoor shower for one hour and it was dry!
WE need rain desperately!

Boootiful!
I have promised myself I would finish the Spring Mystery first before I started this one, but seeing yours really, really makes it difficult!
