WIP - Vernal Equinox Surprise Shawl.... still
Yes, yes. I know the pattern's been out like two year now.

And I'm still on clue 3. Which is a long one. I'm about half-way through.
The RS rows are easy to knit, your mind is occupied with the pattern, like "knit, knit, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, knit, knit,..." but the WS rows are plain boring, just being "purl, purl, purl, purl,..."

That's kinda keeping me off doing it more vigorously.

I'd like to see it finished (of course now there are pictures of it, if you wanna look it up, but I don't wanna see those unless mine is done and about to be blocked, to see what shape it's to be) but that WS row is keeping me off, and the increasing stitch count isn't helping it. (at the end of each clue, you have to repeat "knit, yo" to double the stitch count)

I love the yarn (Tsuki by Artyarns, blue), I've never worked with such a thin and at the same time strong yarn. It's amazing.

Enough of my ranting. I hope to get through clue 3 soon.

I'll keep you updated.
