10 Yards a Day KAL Final CLUE 15!!!

vI'm so excited!!!! It turned out beautiful... The great part about Clue 15 was the bind off!! It was the first time I have ever done it this way. It was a K3tog, chain 5 with a crochet hook. It was tedious and took some time because clue 14 ends with 414 stitches but what a beautiful way to end it. Anyone thinking about doing another? Maybe Stephen West? I have a few more options any ideas?

10 yards a Day KAL Clue 13

I can't believe how fast this KAL has gone by. Just finishing Clue 13 and I love the diamond design more and more and the s3 stitch almost makes a star form. This project you definitely needed the full 450 yards, I know people are running out of yarn it even mentions it in the notes of the pattern alternative ways to end it if you running low. Being careful of that I should have more than enough to complete Clue 14 and 15. See you guys soon!

10 Yards a Day KAL Clue 10

OMG!!! So much easier with stitch markers at every 16 stitches. There was a couple of times that i got around and realized that there was 1 stitch extra or short and I was able to fix it right away instead of waiting until i backed out 368 stitches. That is so not fun!! So remember to save your sanity use stitch markers!! I'm so curious to see what the design will end up looking like. This is such beautiful lace work.   If you are just reading this and would like information on what is being used. I am...

10 yards a day KAL Clue 9

I'm so glad to be feeling better and getting back to this KAL. The one thing I have learned with this project is stitch markers. I would've loved to have started it at the beginning but now I'm adding them because 1 stitch off and it's a pain to back out over 300 stitches. So rule of thumb always use stitch markers when done by a lace pattern.

10 yards a Day KAL Clue 8

Ok, so despite the fact I have gotten a little slow at doing my clues due to my arm having severe pain and tingling I am LOVING this KAL!! The more I work it and see the design forming I am getting more and more excited for each clue. This has been my relaxing piece to work on while watching/listening to The Chew on my DVD at night.  Am I the only one who stays up late torturing my self watching cooking shows that make me so hungry and knitting? This project has been one that's hard to put down....
