For the first clue you only use two of your colors and I decided to see if I liked the green any better once I started knitting. I decided to use the green and purple to start but I wasn't happy with the results, although, in looking at this picture it doesn't look that bad. It's just not what I was looking for. RIP, RIP, RIP.
It actually looks a little better than it does in this picture. I'm liking the colors and with the right green, I think it'll be just what I'm looking for. I'm s little past the halfway point of Clue #1, to the end of row 45. Since switching to two long circular needles the knitting it much easier, especially when it comes to working around the arc at the top. I've also added stitch markers after every group of 20 stitches to cut down on the counting on every row. I don't know if I'll be finished by the time the second clue is published, but I'll be close enough so that I won't feel like I'm falling behind.
Now, the burning question is: What the hell is this thing? It's not like any knitting I've ever done before. At this point, it's bizarre! I'm looking forward to Clue #2.
