the lace knitting bug has bit

and I'm scratching away! :)

Mystic Meadows Mystery Shawl KAL

There is a fee for this one, but I believe it will be well worth the price.



The first clue was released today and it is going to be a challenge. But I believe I am up for it! I will be using KP Shimmer in "Flower Garden*" and US5 Addi Turbo needles.

The Casablanca KAL



The theme is known: Casablanca. The clues are the mystery and will begin sometime in mid-June. I'm thinking my Azul Bolita Malabrigo lace will work well for this one!

Goddess Knits Anniversary Mystery Shawl

Celebrating her third anniversary, Goddess Knits is releasing a 'pi' style shawl pattern in a series of five clues -- beginning June 14, 2008. But you can sign up to be part of the party as late as June 30, 2008.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Each of these are Yahoo! Groups with complementary groups in Ravelry. The clues are all released in the Groups and, I believe, the patterns will be available for purchase from the designers after the KALs have finished.

I'll keep you posted on my progress. My only hope is ... the staggered clue release schedule! :)

ETA: Oh, and I joined Seasons of Lace

I have joined the "Casablanca" list. I doubt that I'll be knitting along but I am looking forward to the pattern to make at aome future date.

I do admire your ambition Kathleen - if you have any energy left over, send it over to my house, would you? LOL :)
