Hi everyone
With apologies to my quilting friends, today is a knitting day.
I am still working on the first clue of the Mystery Shawl. But here are the photos of what I have done so far, and how I set up the charts First off, the chart is so long, I couldn't tape it together and still be able to use the magnetic board. So this is the right side of the chart. I have marked in yellow all of the marker placements, I have marked in blue, all of the ssk's, and in purple are the \/ stitches. The ssk is / the k2tog is\ I NEED to mark one of them. I have also written out the chart for the back, which is the lower right. Although, now that I have accomplished some of the pattern, I don't really need it as it is pretty straight forward now. The magnet at the top holds the beads on that weird dental floss for people with braces. I have to say, that was a neat little idea, and it works very well. But it is a slow moving process for me.

Here is a small section of clue one. I think it is going to be really nice when it is finished and blocked. You can't see, because the edge is rolled up, but every other stitch along the edge has a bead. I'm anxious to see how it turns out. Have a good Sunday! Dinner is in the crockpot, and we are going to the movies!
