Following my Arrow


The first clue for Follow Your Arrow arrived at 9.30 on Monday night, so basically I went to knit night and got home to find it there! Very exciting. Although I was tempted to cast on immediately, we are getting up an hour earlier to go to CrossFit before work this week - with weather hitting forty degrees here every day this week, I didn't want to melt, so I've switched to morning workouts. So I had a day to consider whether to do Clue A or Clue B.
 
The good thing is that I got home an hour earlier, so I cast on before dinner. The first clue knit up very quickly, and I love the interaction between the dark blue garter stitch and the pretty green stocking stitch.
 
It's not really clear from this photo , but BOTH the yarns have sparkle in them, which is making this even more fun.
 
I decided on Clue B because I couldn't really understand the construction of Clue A - it looked like a triangle shawl, but not quite. Now I've peeked at the spoilers, and, while I'm glad I chose Clue B for my stripy version, the construction of Clue A is really quite interesting.
