I finally finished clue 1 tonight after 6 attempt to start and not mess it up. I found the if you are not really, really, really used to using super fine yarn that it is very difficult to knit with and most of all to read your knitting. I guess I havent got to that level yet. because I ended up using a much thicker yarn that suggested. You can see a picture of the yarn in the last photo. It is ivory alpaca and I would say that it is a heavy lace weight yarn. I love the results but I think I might be brave and try it again in the yarn that it called for. We'll see how ambitious I get. I also am working on clue 1 of Dem Fischer Sin Fru KAL and I am on row 19 of 77 so, the second one will have to wait. I will probably start clue 2 tomorrow.
