Knitting Update: Follow Your Arrow 2 MKAL

I anxiously logged onto Ravelry this morning to get the second clue to the Ysolda Teague mystery knit-along I'm doing, Follow Your Arrow 2. There are definitely lots of benefits to having Mondays off work, and one of them is getting to work on the MKAL clue right after it's released! It snowed a few inches last night and Jarrod got to stay home from work today, and it just turned into an all-around lazy day, so I spent a glorious amount of time knitting and got the entire clue done! That frees up the rest of the week for me to work on my mom's scarf and my Gryffindor scarf, but that means I have to wait a whole week to get the next piece of the puzzle! And, honestly, I'm a little sad that we're already down to only three clues left. The mystery aspect is always exciting, but Ysolda's MKALs are extra-fun because there are two options for each clue. So much anticipation! And it's such a blast to watch all the other shawls take shape and see how other knitters pair the clues.

Clue 1 (I did option B) was the bigger arrow in the center, and clue 2 (option B again) is the two sets of smaller sideways arrows. I absolutely LOVE clue 2, although I kind of wish I had done clue 1A, which seemed to create more of a long and narrow crescent-shaped shawl. But I'm sure it will all fit together flawlessly at the end.

I'm loving all the texture to this shawl. I know the design elements are supposed to be arrows, but to me the bigger arrow from clue 1 looks like a pine tree and the smaller arrows from clue 2 look like branches or laurel. So pretty! I'm very excited to see what comes next!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
