SSS Clue 8

Four to go. Next week will not be too complicated either, but for those knitting the long version this is where you will have to catch up.
And guess what...I have finished my own SSS and it's now blocking. I managed to pin it out to 75 by 195 cm (29.5" by 76.8")

SSS scarf

By the end of the kal and afterwards it will be possible to purchase a pdf file with the pattern for the Spring Shawl Surprise.
As an extra treat it will include the pattern for the SSS scarf. A scarf where you start out with the center pattern (the birds eye pattern), knit on the ends by using the live stitches from each end of the birds eye pattern (you have to cast on using a provisional cast on) and finally add the end borders as a knitted on border.
I just have to write down the pattern (why didn't I do that while knitting??) and have a testknitter to check it.
But at least I finally got around to blocking it the other day.
You can click the pictures for a bigger version.

SSS Clue 7

Clue 7! This is where it starts to get possible to guess the theme -or so I thought. There is one thing I could say to help out....but I am not going to...yet ;-) We still have 5 clues left, but the next couple of weeks will be quite easy before I throw people into the most complicated part of the shawl (which is as far as I am on my SSS -and I spend a looong time yesterday trikking back!)

Size: 108 x 66 cm / 42.5" x 25.9
And I'm still using Jaggerspun Superfine merino Ruby colorway on 3 mm needles

Spring is in the air...

Though it's freezing cold! But the sun is shining from a blue sky

SSS Clue 6

Halfway through, just about. On Ravelry Spring Shawl Surprise is number one in the most active recently published designs. Think that's kind of fun and I am honoured that so many are working on it. Thanks to all of you!
This weeks clue has been a nightmare because it turned out to have lots of mistakes, especially around the beginning of the circle in the center. I am really really sorry about this! In the future I'll go through the clues before sending them out, to make sure this doesn't happen again. I can't guarantee no mistakes, but as many as in clue 6 is a no no!

SSS Clue 5

I wonder what is going to happen next.... ;-) I don't think anyone has been close to guessing the theme yet.....
