As you can see by the side notes, one of the mysteries involves lace knitting shawl........Remily Knits. She is offering the first one of her series free of charge, so any good detective jumps onto the case right away, even though the clues don't appear yet.
The next mystery involves more lace knitting with beads! Okay, get out the stash and all those pretty beads, ready the needles and look for the first clue here..........designs-by-atalante on Ravelry page. This one costs now as we missed the free period--darn it! But, it looks like it will be a fun adventure with the first clue up now. This mystery is based on Grimm fairy tale Frau Holle.
Onto the next exciting mystery in the knitting category and comes from one of my favorite hat designers--Woolly Wormhead. Yes, this one costs some too, but her designs are always interesting and unique. Here is the first mystery clue solved.
|This is handspun-two ply wool, silk, mohair blend. This is the headband or brim section of the pattern.|
|Why is it I can never remember how to do the Kitchner Stitch? Either I have to reply on the printed word or this excellent Utube video. And please, no distractions while in the process of doing this stitch! Lose concentration and boy, what a mess!|
|All finished! Clue solved and ready for clue #2--bring it on! |
