I Guess It's Finally Public

I'm still slogging through the Through The Loops Mystery Shawl 2017, but the KAL is over. Designer Kirsten Kapur has renamed the project "Fugue in Mosaic Minor," and is it for sale on Ravelry.

Many people have finished their shawls. Here was mine before we left Madison for Door County:
I was halfway through Clue 3 out of 5, so I figure I'm about halfway through it.  Now I've seen photos of the finished shawl, and it is pretty stunning.
Can you see my mistake here? There's an extra pink ridge at the top of the mosaic section. I'm OK with it.
One of the nice things about it is that there are four mosaic sections, each one more challenging than the one before it. It's like a mosaic tutorial.
If you are interested in the pattern, you can find it here.

This is my trip knitting, but I don't know how much I'll get done. My main focus is on the art quilt I need to finish for a show this winter.

  1. That ridge doesn't look at all like a mistake to me - definitely a design element. I love the colors you chose!

  3. Oh, it's just gorgeous! Love those colors and all the texture. Door County is one of my favorite places, too -- enjoy your trip. Have you been to the Door County Creamery in Sister Bay yet? They have terrific goat's cheese and make wonderful sandwiches.

  7. Lovely! No one will notice the "extra" ridge without the pattern right in front of them, and I doubt it would be noticed even then.

    Your work is gorgeous.

  9. Wow, that's fantastic. The texture is fabulous. I've never really considered a mosaic project like this. hmm. You've done a great job. And seriously, even though you pointed out what was "wrong" I don't see it as a mistake at all. Well done.
