Mystery KAL from Laura Nelkins
This is what I've been up to as far as knitting for the past week. It's a mystery knit-along (KAL) from Nelkin Designs. The details for the KAL can be found here . There are lots of people working on this project and a whole Ravelry group dedicated to it. I am using some Ella Rae Lace Merino, size 7 needles, and beads that I bought online from what is now the Northampton Beadery.
The above represents only 40 rows and 2 clues, but it took me 10 days to figure out the correct placement of beads and yarnovers. Despite some serious frustration, I really enjoy lace and beadwork. It's fiddly, it's slow, and you really can't watch TV at the same time, but it really is satisfying!
