My mandala shawl has really stalled out over the past couple of weeks. Work has been too busy for me to have the desire for intense lace knitting in the evening. I brought it on vacation simply to make sure I never ran out of knitting projects, even though I had intended to work on socks and a scarf until ravelympics started.
I found though, that the relaxing time with my family is highly conducive to intense lace knitting, so I worked on the mandala shawl almost exclusively.
I am almost done with clue 4, but as you can see, the shawl is very very small even at the end of clue 4. I intend to use every single clue 4 choice to expand the shawl, and then possibly add a different, larger edging to increase its size. Nonetheless, I am very pleased with it.
