I’m so pleased with my mystery knit along shawl The Lonely Heart is a Hunter, by RavenKnits (Rav link). Not only do I love the finished garment, but I enjoyed each clue along the way.
Yarn is Elemental Effects Cormo Lace. I kettle dyed it with Jacquard Acid Dyes in periwinkle and silver, deliberately adding some sprinkles for variegation. Beads are Toho of Japan Seed Beads, Size: 6/0 Color: Transparent Frosted Rainbows Light Tanzanite (lavender blue) Color Number: 6-166DF.
I had never participated in a mystery knit along before. I can definitely recommend RavenKnits as a designer for this format. (Rav link) I love that the fiber is Cormo wool. It’s so squishy! I was worried about the drape, but it blocked out nicely.
The little mermaid glass bead is on a progress keeper clasp. I have taken to wearing it as a closure for my magical cape. My plan is to sew a lavender linen Barcelona Dress to wear with this to my art opening on September 4.
