Figures I would join the Mystery Stole 3 KAL right before the 2nd clue comes out. But join I did. Yes, I know I said I was giving up lace. Sort of. And yes, I knew that this particular stole was to be considered NOT for lace beginners. But even though I’ve screwed up the last few lace attempts, I think I’m a little bit further along than a beginner. So I jumped in, complete with Jaggerspun Zephyr in burgundy(forgive me not knowing the name).
Oh sure it didn’t help that everyone else’s WIPs were so pretty. Nor the fact that I’m sitting on what looks like a neverending supply of laceweight yarns(thanks in part to me BUYING some just a short while again).
That’s just a few rows away from the end of Clue #1, and I actually finished it before sitting down to type this. You can rest assured I will be starting Clue #2 as soon as I’m done with this. *grin*
I’ve tinked a row or 5(don’t ask) and I’ll be adding in lifelines as it goes on. But overall, it wasn’t too bad. The only thing bugging me now is this:
So that’s my WIP Friday, even if it is Saturday when I post it. I should be duplicate stitched. No progress has been made on Stripedy, I’ve ripped and repurposed the yarn for the Forget Me Not socks(they’re now just plain, I’ll redo the pattern in a different yarn), Phineas is on a shelf calling me nasty names, and the Shawl-I-Can’t-Screw-Up is at a stand still. Add to that the fact that I’ve cast on a shell/tank and I’m headed for knitting hell in a handbasket.
I’ve since acquired the yarn to finish off the bmp pair so after I get these two pairs off the needles I’ll be finishing that up. In between MS3 sessions. *wink*
