Sleeves, completed

Since I rewarded myself for early morning industry by spending the balance of the day with three delightful women from the Saturday knitting group (four if you want to count the grinning, drooling toothless wonder on her matt holding her toes and crowing) I thought it more appropriate to update you on the knitting projects rather than discuss the wonders of salad, cheese sandwiches and ice cream.

If I can get it together, I will get a photo of it on a person which will make it much clearer.

Analucia

Clue 5 came out a day early on Thurs eve and I started messing around with it. If you knit as writ, the shawl will wind up with a kind of log-cabin appearance with strips of different lace patterns.

Since that is so not my thing, I have been doing sections of each pattern across the whole shawl interspersed a few rows of stockinette and lots of beads.

Since I am not using a terribly long needle -

it is hard to get an impression of the lace

panels or the final size of the shawl. I am not worried about running out of yarn – there are only 1-3 clues left and I have a lot of alpaca left on that cone!
