I've mainly been focused on this shawl and managed to finish up clue 3 this week. The lace pattern in this shawl has a really nice rhythm to it, a row with lace, a rest row, a row with beads, a rest row, another row with lace, a rest row, and then two rows of the variegated yarn. Nothing too hard or complicated, and the yarn feels wonderful. The purple has wonderful tonal variations that the picture just doesn't do justice to. The final clue (clue 5) has come out with a picture of the blocking shawl. It will be beautiful when finished, and cuddly. I picked out some possible beads this week for my second Liken shawl. Here is a picture of the shawl draped on my dress form, just to give an idea of how it might look when worn.
