Mystery Stole 3

Ok so I've been working on socks and haven't worked on lace in a while. So yesterday I dragged out the old "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" but couldn't remember where I was. I kind of guessed but ended up frogging the whole thing! But I was in the lace frame of mind and therefore went over and signed up for the Mystery Stole Along 3. Luckily I had some cones of Zephyr in my stash that was somewhat suitable...I say somewhat because in the pattern requirements they suggests black or white or some variation thereof. I had sable, lady slipper and indigo. So indigo it is. I was also able to dig up some seed beads that "match" as well. So I cast on yesterday afternoon and finished up last night around 10. Now I can hardly wait for the other clues. Boy of Boy how I miss lace. I am going to cast on for Leda's Dream because I don't want to wait to knit more lace. So I will work on this while I wait for my Kauni Yarn to arrive from the Netherlands, and my new skein of Lime and Violet's Sock yarn arrives. I also ordered a skein of Worsted Hand Paint from Zen Yarn Garden . I think I'll do mittens for myself with it.

And of course I continue to stalk White Willow for new sock knitting bags.

On my walk this AM I encountered a nice, big, fat, black bear. I really wish I had my camera. Luckily it was early and guys were on their way to work, so I asked one of them to zip me by him as he wasn't interested in leaving the ditch on his own. Even with me singing loudly! Crazy bear!

Judith, Thanks for the comment on my blog. Your stole is looking lovely. I know from your comment you are further along than the pictures on this post. Yes, I have stitches left over, but I goofed somewhere as I have 22. I think it is supposed to be 21. Probably didn't purl two together on one of the WS rows. It will work. :)
