It's Getting Scot in Here!





Whew - do you feel that? The temperature's rising! Not just outside, but in our living rooms as we greedily soak in the newest episodes of our favorite show on Starz!

Ahem. I'm gonna need a second.

Handsome Jamie isn't the only thing that's got us excited: Rachel's Mystery Knit-Along is up and running, and the results are just gorgeous so far! The yarn is just beautiful, too - Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Rachel's specially-created Craigh na Dun colorway reminds us of Scottish moors covered in forget-me-not flowers!

Just take a look at some of the progress Ravelers have made on the first two clues:

ArcticWoolies' Craigh na Dun is looking fab!

CakersKnits even used her special Spark Stitch Markers!

clrowe01 is cabling up a storm!

And that's not all - many of you have taken matters into your own hands and tried your own yarn colors and modifications, as well!


shand302 used The Verdant Gryphon Bugga! in Persephone (how apropos!)

tbears99 is loving it in TML in Ginger

TerryRoss was wooed by Wollmeise in Patina (and she's planning to add beads!)



How is your MKAL project coming along? Share some photos and notes with us on the MKAL 2015 chat boards! (Beware of spoilers!)

Want to read more? Check out Rachel's blog!

We can't wait to see the finished shawl - we'll be checking back in with more progress as the MKAL unfolds!

And psst...here's my own little attempt...in Tosh Merino Light, color Plaid Blanket, with some eyelet lace in the garter section to disguise any gauge discrepancies! (And because I thought it might look good with the upcoming border...*wink!) I love this pattern so much, I'm staying up too late knitting. Oh, the sacrifices we knitters make for our craft!


I love it!


Happy Knitting!
