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.
