Winter Mystery Shawl 2010 - Clue 1 Done
Goddess Knits and the first clue came out yesterday. Frankly I couldn't resist casting on with this yarn. It is scrumptious. The yarn is from Spinning Bunny and is 80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon. The color is Velvet Merlot. There are beads, but they are hard to spot in this photo. It is rather gray outside today, so I had to use the flash. It shows up the lace pattern very well, but not the beads. I am using white opal matte irid (Beadcats stock no: 2-06-012-36). They contrast nicely without being garish. I think they look like pearls, or snow, on the deep burgundy yarn.
