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 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....
