Juego MKAL went out May 24th... and that means it's time to share my photos of Juego with you! Mystery Knit A Long's are always a blast to work on as they engender a fabulous sense of community and help expand those knitting skills. I think many of the people who have already finished their Juego's might not have even attempted it had they seen the finished photo first. This puppy was packed with technique!
I knit my Juego in SpaceCadetCreations Celeste Five Rings and Feather, it was my first time working with this yarn, and it won't be my last.... it handled the beads and bloomed beautifully when blocked!
Juego is a center out, top down, bi-color shawl worked seamlessly in sections with a reversible cable edging. The pattern contains links to 7 unique videos that help immensely with the techniques used in the pattern!
Circular Cast On
Knitting in the Round
Basic Lace Stitches
Knitting with Beads
A final version of Juego (sans clues) has been uploaded to Ravelry. I've left the version with clues as well for those of you might still want to work it that way!
There are SO many knitters to thank for helping to make this KAL a success: my Ravelry moderators were amazing, Stefanie from Space Cadet got a TON of yarn dyed in a short period of time, my testers and tech editor allowed me to mess with their brains (and needles) on more than one occasion while we simplified the pattern as much as possible AND my Ravelry group... the most amazing collection of humans you will ever find. Your perseverance, empathy, patience and AWESOME sense of humor made this the most amazing KAL yet! Seriously, LOVE you guys!
The best part? I FINALLY get to wear my Juego! I finished it in January and it's been packed away for months! I might have worn it on a date with my honey to our favorite restaurant on Seneca Lake (it was a Wednesday, there were no knitter's there....) It's first "real" outing is TNNA in 2 weeks....
