The seed was planted when Kirsten announced she had designed a mystery shawl for a June KAL.
The seed was watered when she introduced it as a three color shawl. The idea was fertilized when I saw Kim's new colors, Suede and Urban Cowboy.
With Kim's suggestion of Blue Moon as the third color the seed was properly nurtured.
The all of it germinated my Germinate.
As with every mystery, there is always uncertainty. With each clue only a little is revealed.Slowly diamonds emerged in the lace and then grew larger in each section.
The final lace border was looked to with great anticipation. How would it end? As leaves grew, the final lace ledge put into place, the beauty of the shawl unfolded. I couldn't be more pleased.
Lovely. the shawl, the backdrop and You!

It's fantastic, Margene! And your photo shoot is in my favorite spot - wish I'd been there to take these photos. You've made me want to knit one of these.

Stunningly gorgeous! I haven't yet been able to trust that I'll love the finished product from the mystery process, but your faith in the seeds has resulted in a lovely shawl. Wear & enjoy in good health & happiness!

I can't even begin to tell you how much I ADORE your shawl. The color combination is absolutely perfect for the pattern. (Oh, now I just want to cast on for Germinate MORE THAN EVER.)
Lovely. Lovely shawl. Lovely location. Lovely Margene.
