Mystery Shawl Progress

Last Friday evening we hosted a CastOn party for several knitters who are knitting the 3rd Mystery Shawl. We had a great time, mistakes were made, Lucy's invaluable "forensic" knitting skills put us back on the right path and yummy desserts were shared. Ann came the furthest from Danbury, although, Lucy came from Massachusetts so it may be too close to call. We decided that to keep the momentum going we are meeting each Friday evening in July from 6-9pm. If any of you would like to join, please visit the Pink Lemon Twist website. I believe Melanie is closing off membership (free) on July 6th so you do still have time to join the fun.
In the upper right corner you can see my progress. That's 99 rows of lace knitting on size 4 needles. The piece is approximately 8 x 12 inches - we obviously have many more rows in front of us. That's the fun of it; we don't know what's next until Melanie posts the new set of directions. We can't wait for Friday's!

I did come from Massachusetts, but it's only a bit over a half an hour drive, so I think Ann won :)
