Hold On To That Feeling

Soundtrack. . .


Knitting a "mystery" project* . . . is kind of like setting of on an adventurous JOURNEY.

You know very little about your final destination.

You don't know what path you'll follow.

You have no idea if you packed the right gear.

You don't know what twists and turns you might encounter.

Or . . . how often you might need to double back and begin again.



If you trust.

If you have a bit of faith.

And if you hold on to that feeling.


You might just end up in the right place!


Don't Stop Believing!

(Ravelry details here.)


*  A "mystery" knit is just that . . . a mystery!  When you sign on to knit it, you have no idea what the final product will look like (although you do know if it will be a shawl or a pair of socks!).  You have no clue what colors might look best with the design.  You have no idea what you've just gotten yourself into!  You simply follow the "clues" (usually released once a week) . . . and trust that it will all work out in the end.

Your shawl turned out beautifully!!! I love the shape of this mystery and most of the color combinations worked. Romi is brilliant! Your colors are elegant and lovely. The all of it is just gorgeous!
(I'm ready to block!)


I think your trust and sense of adventure worked out beautifully! A really lovely shawl in a lovely location!


Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Looks like you'll get a lot of wear out of that. ;-)


What a gorgeous shawl! Did you ever have moments of trepidation as you knitted it? What fun!


It's beautiful Kym! That last section of lace... stunning! Mine awaits blocking...


Yours is a stunner! I finished mine on Monday and will be blocking this weekend.


I love your explanation of the mystery journey. The winged victory picture of you in the woods is awesome!


Your shawl is just stunning, and the colors are gorgeous. The picture of you in the woods holding it out for us to see is outstanding! Was is a joy to make, and would you do it again?


it's beautiful! blue and white is a favorite...your shawl evokes all that I love about it!
