The Clue In The Inbox

Friday was all kinds of exciting, until I had to go to work.

I was all set up ready for cast on for the Ravellenics and I knew I’d have to wait to do that, it was very hard to not call in knit after waking up to Clue 4 of The Peter Pan Mystery Shawl KAL in my inbox though. Fortunately for my landlord, I went to work. I did scurry home directly afterwards, didn’t even stop for groceries and by Saturday afternoon had this:

Probably the best photo of the colour shifts so far. This is much more representative of the gradient shift between the first four skeins. I’m using a 2-2-2-2-2-2 mix for each colour change, it seems to give the most subtle effect. The more I work with the Pashmi gradient, the more I can’t wait to cast on my Eos. It’s a merino silk laceweight (the Pashmi is merino/cashmere/nylon fingering). The entire gradient concept has me captured.

I finished the first of the fingerless mitts that will match my Ravellenics hat, late Saturday evening and hope to have a pair by Tuesday. It’s a small dent in the pile of stash that needs busting but a dent nonetheless!
