Mystery shawl, clues 2 and 3:
Valentine mystery socks: clue 1 of the first sock is nearly done. No picture because there's not that much to see.
Hygge shawl: clue 1 has been printed out. I had to go down many hook sizes to get gauge. This is not something that usually happens to me with crochet. The hook does not play well with the yarn. I have to decide if I want to spend many weeks fighting with a hook or moving up a couple sizes and risk running out of yarn.
It's always something.
