Following all the arrows

When I was a kid and used to read "choose your own adventure" books, I'd follow them through, logically, once, and then I'd got back and read all the possible endings, and work out all the ways to get there. While I don't plan to knit Ysolda's Follow your Arrow in all its permutations, I realised I do want to knit every clue. So I pulled out the only 200 gram lot of single coloured sock yarn I have, some lovely 50 / 50 silk wool blend and cast on for clue 1, option A.
This might be the worst photo ever, the cable kept curling up...
 I'm really excited to use this yarn, it is some One Fat Slug that I bought in 2011. I was going to make long socks out of it, but then I realised that they couldn't wear well. I also didn't think it would knit up so much prettier than it was in the skein, but am very relieved it did.

Like many people doing this KAL I'm intrigued to see how all the clues will fit together. I'm also wondering how Ysolda worked out the yardage, since I'm pretty since Clue A used quite a bit more yarn than Clue B.
