I'm Loving This!
And speaking of which, can I just tell you how much fun I'm having with this KAL? I usually don't do mysteries (except of the literary or BBC kind) or KALs, but this one really has me hooked. First of all, it's lovely, and I got to see others' first clue before I began, so I knew I liked (at the very least) part of it! ::g:: And then there's the fact that it's lace, which I totally love! Next, and this is a huge surprise to me actually, I love the fact that the clues are given out at intervals! I have the tendency to whip through lace so I can see what it looks like blocked. This one, though, I am savoring like a fine port. I can't go any faster. And that is making me happy. :)

A few people on the MS3 list were asking about reading charts, so in case this is helpful to anyone out there, here's a picture of my chart:
I follow a chart like this one (no repeats) by highlighting the lines that I have knitted. By doing this, I can see where I have been and where I am going. It helps me to keep the pattern in my mind's eye and to "read" the lace as it is knitted.
Now, everyone, go tell Becky that she really really needs a shawl. 'Cause she totally does. Hee.
