Westknits Mystery Knitalong 2014

It’s the first time ever that I’m participating not only in a knitalong but in a mystery one. I’m so excited! I’m a huge fan of Stephen West’s designs and one of the recommended yarns for the knitalong is our own Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn.
How can I resist?
The first thing is to choose colours. Fun!

What you need is 3 colours that are of similar value and one contrast colour. I chose (above image, left to right) Silence, Stone, Monarch and Graphite as my contrast colour.

I’ve been dutifully knitting solely on my square Lucidity shawl all month. I’m desperate to finally finish the beast and I can’t wait to cast on for the mystery shawl. The first clue is out on the 31st of October.
11 days to finish the last few incredibly long edging rows and to cast off the monster shawl/blanket –  shlanket?.

 

Go on, go stash diving and join our HF troupe, we’ll be posting in this thread on Ravelry.
Have you ever participated in a mystery knitalong? If so which one?

  1. ooh, your colour combo looks awesome! I haven't participated in a mystery KAL before, but I'm not a huge shawl knitter and mystery KALs are pretty much always shawls/wraps. Yours is going to look beautiful!

  2. This is exactly why I didn't dare to tread the lace territory as of yet. (I mean the occasional scarf doesn't count). It is a scary land, it is, but full of exquisitely beautiful beasts, like your Lucidity. Even unblocked lovely mess looks kind of aristocratic. Which colourway is it btw?

  3. I have participated in two mystery KAL's and many other KAL's. One mystery was Stephen West's mystery last year and then I did Ysoldas. I'm also particpating in Stephens this year also. I have a question though, I love your monarch colorway and I know it is a club colorway if an when will it be released for the public?
