attack of the knitting zombies! (Speckle & Pop! Spoiler Alert)

Yesterday my husband showed off a video clip that he had secretly recorded of me as I was obsessively knitting on my Speckle & Pop! Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL. It was pretty hilarious to watch myself mumbling and cursing....there might even have been some cackling as I was knitting my way through a particularly tough section. He claims that he deleted the video but I suspect that it still exists somewhere in the netherworld. So if you come across a short movie titled “Attack of the Knitting Zombies”, you’ll know who the star is :)

And here is some progress pics of my current obsession:

I look forward to Stephen West’s Mystery Shawl KAL every year and this one has been particularly fun & challenging. I got off to a slow start due to some yarn indecision but it is going pretty smoothly at the moment. Although I just started clue 3 and it looks to be a doozy. Which means more material for my budding filmmaker!


  1. and you didn't share it with us?!?!? It certainly looks as if the grumblings are paying off...that's one gorgeous shawl!!!

  2. How fun is this project?!? I love all the textures and techniques for the SW Mystery shawl, but I have neither patience or skill for it. I love living vicariously through your experience. The photos are fabulous. I think it's adorable that he filmed you in full Mystery KAL mode. I'm pretty sure most of us mutter, sputter and I know I swear when I'm figuring out what went wrong. Okay, I do the same even when it goes right. ha! Can't wait to see how it turns out.

  3. Oh man, there's a lot of colors you're working with there; they are a terrific combination. I LOL'd about the video; what a character he is to have recorded you.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your wonderful visits. You always make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. XO

  4. Your colors are gorgeous!!! Can't wait to see more of the project.

  5. Great colors - can't wait to see the end result. Too funny about the video.
