Theodora Mini Mystery Kerchief KAL

I've been good about finishing projects lately.  Braydon's red sweater is packaged up and ready to take to the post office, the Saroyan scarf is in a Soak bath and will be blocked shortly and I've worked on the second Fabel sock and I'm turning the heel.  A finished pair of socks is in sight.

I'm giving myself a break and starting something new.  I decided to join the Theodora Mini Mystery Kerchief knitalong on Ravelry.  It's on the CriminalKnits group, a branch of the Criminal Minds group.  It started on Febraury 2nd and yesterday the second clue was released.  I'll start knitting today so that I don't get too far behind.

The suggested yarn is one ball of Wolle's Yarn Creations Color Changing Cotton, 100g.  This is the same yarn that I used, and liked, for the Saroyan shawl.  The pattern is the creation of Hilary at threebagsfulled on Ravelry.

This time I'm using the "Desert Clay II" colorway.  The knitting starts at the top of the kerchief, so I'm going to cast on with the lightest color.  I prefer to have the darker yarn at the bottom of the small shawl. 

I had decided to not to participate in another mystery knitalong a while ago when I didn't much like the finished shawl, but I was weak and I wanted to use the suggested yarn again.  Besides, it's just a kerchief, not a full shawl, not a big project.  I'm feeling adventurous.
