Summertide Mystery Knit Along is a last goodbye to lovely, long summer days and the first clue has been published. I know I have said this before but I really enjoy Helen's patterns. She uses a grid with a line for every row. This allows you to check your stitch count on a regular basis (in case a stitch has been added or dropped) and see your progress in percentages. I find this to be a great way to read a pattern.
As I cast on and began knitting, I realized that my first color is so similar to our freshly painted deck. There is a hint of grey that I find very calming.
There has been a fair amount of fiber in my week. I am almost finished with my black and orange print dress and I did the applique center for my Midnight quilt. And I am excited that a few more quilters are joining us on the Jen Kingwell Quilt Along.
But for now, I am going to get back to this lovely yarn and pattern.
