I cast on for the Kellokukka Shawl earlier this week.  It’s the Beginning Lace Knitters’ August KAL on Ravelry.  Kellokukka means Bell Flower.  It’s a lovely shawl.  There’s only a chart for this one and no written directions.  The chart has started out a little confusing, but with the help of generous ravelers in the KAL I’m getting it sorted out.


I’m using Malabrigo Sock in the Impressionist Sky colorway — very soft and easy to knit.  I’m really about twice as far along as the picture.  It works up quickly as long as I don’t try to knit at night.  I made more foolish mistakes last night and no progress to speak of.  I really do much better lace knitting early in the mornings.
