Monika Eckert (Wollklabauter) has just announced a new mystery knit-a-long, starting soon–the “Masked Ball in Venice”.  She has not even given the yarn requirements yet, so there is lots of time to join the group before it starts!  Go to her blog to get the information, or visit her on Ravelry.  Moni celebrated her birthday in April by sharing a mystery KAL on her blog–the Taurus shawl.

Moni’s designs are so lovely, and it is really wonderful of her to celebrate her own birthday by sharing a mystery design–it was free for the duration of the KAL and afterwards will be available for sale, along with other patterns, in her online shop!

I used one  skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn my daughter bought me for MY birthday last summer–I’d been keeping it for something special, and Taurus shawl is it!  The finished shawl is about 60″ (150cm) wingspan by 24″ (60cm) deep, using 5mm needles.

Now…to finish up some other works-in-progress before the Masked Ball begins!  On the list:

Vernal Equinox Surprise, Mystic Star, Springtime Swirl, and Wings of Horus……can I do it????

I think so…on Moni’s blog, she says it is about five weeks before the knitting  starts!

Now…out into the sunny garden to knit!
