Happenings August 5: MKAL's, Finished vest, wool beds

Welcome to Happenings! A lot is going on, so lets get right to it.

FINISHED ITEM
The Rick Rack Unconstructed Vest by Melissa Leapman for Interlacements is now finished.  This colorway is Scottish Lichen. Just might make one for myself, sometime.
Isn't it pretty?

WORKS-IN-PROGRESS
One item was being very frustrating, but is now going nicely. I hope.

MYSTERY KNIT ALONGS
Like a good mystery? Join one of these Mystery Kal's this summer:

Five motifs to make the item of your choice. Square 1 is already released, join now. One square each Monday in August. DK weight yarn

A fingering weight shawl to remind you of cool mountain breezes will be released throughout September. Optional beads, One thousand yards, but knit on large needles for the yarn. 

Two color mystery socks, cast on today. Even the cover photo is mysterious.

Dancing Bees shawl pattern, first clue was released June 20, but there are still two clues left. Knit it as a triangle, three-quarter, or square. Beads optional, lace weight yarn.

Join in the 4 stages of a thunderstorm with this Kal. Inspired by the soothing comfort of rain, full of hope. Fingering weight.
