So, I decided to do my first Mistery KAL in February called: Blooming Fuchsia Mystery KAL.



Blooming Fuchsia is a triangularish-shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. I named this shawl Blooming Fuchsia because the color of the yarn I used to knit this shawl is inspired by the color of blooming Fuchsia.
Pattern includes charts and written directions, and instructions to calculate the stitch count totals for every row. I also include the number of stitches to cast on and the yardage if you decide to work a different number of repeats.

FO: Rendezvous Shawl

This is the first shawl I made using the yarn that hand-dyed by my husband. However because of the process editing and testing took longer time, I published Piquant earlier.
When I designed this pattern, I though it will be lovely in this bold solid color, so I requested him to dye this color for me. Since this pattern is my design and using his hand-dyed yarn, I think Rendezvous seems to be a very suitable name.

This yarn has excellent yardage. At first I make 8 repeats size, halfway through, I realized that I probably could make 9 repeats size with this yarn. So, I frogged the whole thing and started all over again.
