Kimono Moon Rising!

I've done a bit of work on the Kimono Moon shawl. Here are two interesting things about it: 1. I really enjoy knitting this, which isn't something I usually say about lace. 2. If it wasn't for a KAL, I probably wouldn't have done this.

So I'm glad for the KAL, even though I usually avoid them like the plague. Do you do KALs? What are the pros and cons?

Here it is:



And here is a close up:




I have eight more rows of lace.

Rainy day and thunderstorms forecast, which means Pilot will pace and pace and pace and pace.

Wow! That is going to be a gorgeous shawl. I've participated in only one KAL, and it was a good experience.

Utterly floored by the Kimono. So incredibly gorgeous.

I like KAL's and I love lace--you are doing a great job on this shawl!

That is just lovely, Kim! The color is perfect for that lace. :-) I have done a few KALs, but I typically don't like to . . . knit along . . . myself. When it thunderstorms here, I have one dog who paces and one who hides. No one is happy. . . :-)

This is beautiful! Love the colour and the intricacy of this work. And how I admire your patience!

Wow! That's beautiful!! I rarely do KALs because I just never seem to be on the same schedule as everyone else. I especially don't like mystery KALs because I don't want to risk my time/yarn on a pattern I might not like. But, having said that, I used to do Wendy Knit's summer mystery KALs each year. I've never met one of her designs I didn't like.
