I just finished up clue 2 of the Spring Mystery Shawl. Clue 3 came out yesterday. Almost fell behind because of other distractions. I am getting quite good at reading lace, and once I understand the row pattern I can often knit the row without looking at the chart. I can't even imagine knitting lace (or cables for that matter) from written instructions any more. It is so much easier to knit from charts.
