I'm playing with fire ...

Trying not to get burned ...

So I've finished Clue 1 for the Mystic Light Shawl KAL!
It's hot, hot, hot!!

Mystic Light Clue 1

I think I should add from Anna at Knit & Knag who designed this pattern:

"This triangular shawl draws its inspiration from light in its many forms.
From a clear, starlit night to the dancing flames of a warming fire.
Silvery moonlight and golden flames."

So that's why I picked the two yarns that I did. Altho, I should maybe wear it with a touch of yellow on black during a starry night in front of the fire pit while at my daughter & son in law's place this summer. How cozy I'll be, huh? Just add the grandchildren around me!

I tried getting shots at different angles and lighting to see if I could get the touch of orange in it to show up. But not sure if it's working. I do love this shawl so far though. In person, it's even nicer.

So now it's on to Clue 2.

But before I do ... I've got to show you some Yarn Porn.

PDRM3511_editedBrooklyn Handspun's Monthly Sock Club yarn came in. This is for March called "Kiss Me I'm Irish" in Soft Spun. AND ...

I just couldn't resist purchasing this colorway the other day. It's dyed especially for Seed Stitch Fine Yarn by Brooklyn Handspun ... in Soft Spun Plus and called "Seed Stitch" of course.

Oh, be still my feet!
