Blooming Mystery KAL - clue 2

Boy this second clue gave me a hard time!

I was so eager to continue knitting, that I did not look at the charts close enough. What tripped me up was, that the wrong side rows are not just purl rows, but with a few knit stitches strewn in, as well as, there were two parts of the chart. At first both charts looked the same, but after a few rows they had different stitches, but I missed that at first. I had to rip back three long rows, and still had to go down a couple of stitches to fix my mistakes. From now on I'll be more careful, because tinking is not much fun, takes me longer than knitting, and I dropped a stitch too. Anyway, I'm done with this clue, and will be knitting the next clue shortly.

I so love this colorway (Wandering Cat Yarns Twinkle Cat - Emerald City)! The twinkle is silver, but it would look great with gold sparkle too.

I hate tinking but it goes along with knitting. This is will be one gorgeous shawl and the green would look fabulous with gold.

I'm really liking what you've done so far. I've never taken part in a mystery KAL, cause I'm afraid of 'wasting' my time, but then quite often I wish I had joined it, LOL.
