I've joined my first real crochet along at Ravelry, the Mystery Laceweight Shawl CAL '09 by Tracey McCorkle. I'm using the Knit Picks Shadow yarn in Spring Green that I was going to use for the Goddess Knits Anniversary Mystery KAL last year but decided against doing until I'm a more accomplished knitter.

Clue 2 was released on 3/8/09 and it took 45 minutes to complete rounds 5 through 7:
I'm hoping to one day be able to design my own shawl and this is excellent practice, plus, I'll have a gorgeous shawl in my favorite color once it is completed!
