Finally I am finished! I started the Downton Abbey Mystery Knit Along in early January with every intention of keeping up with the knitting each week and finishing it just in time for the Downton Abbey season finale. Well… Life (and work!) gets in the way of the best of plans. 🙂
But I am happy to say, I am FINISHED with this knit along! And I LOVE the finished result! I haven’t done a lot of lace knitting so that part took a bit more time than I had planned. One week’s clue, I ripped out after finishing, when I realized I had misinterpreted one of the knitting patterns! So after that, I really wasn’t as motivated to rush. But today I blocked it and really was able to see the lace patterns. I love it! I think I can still enjoy this in the spring, don’t you?
And the Fuzzy Mitten Mystery Animal Knit Along started and so I set the shawl aside each of the last three weeks until I finished the clue for the animal.
Well, I am all caught up with it the animal and I am pretty sure I know what it will be! What do you guess? There are 3 more clues. One has to be the head, and the last week is putting it together, so there is a third piece to this mystery animal.. Does that give you any clues? If not, look at the tail. To me that definitely gives it away! (FYI, the animal has a yellow rain hat and boots. 🙂 )
The lake is having a contest for people to guess the date and time when a plastic duck they put on the ice about a month ago, will float. My guess is next Monday afternoon. It is Spring! And we will be getting things out of storage, and ready to enjoy this Summer! I can hardly wait!
