Free of knitting on the Mystery Stole! It is blocking but i have a feeling i will have to block it again. This is my first time ever blocking lace or anything of this size. i don’t think i stretched it enough lengthwise. I felt like i with every readjustment i would make it would make it worse and find spots that needed to be stretched more.
I love it though. i am not sure how much use it will get but i am so proud of my first lace pattern with lace yarn. It was a great pattern and i had a lot of fun watching it unfold and having no idea what the end result would be. i do have to admit the last 2 weeks really went slow. i wanted so badly to just push the stole aside and not work on it for a long time LOL. I am glad i kept with it because who knows how long it might have been on the back burner.
So just to summarize again-It was Mystery Stole 3
Yarn: Knit Picks Shadow in Grape Jelly from the stash.
i did do the stole with beads. nothing special just some clear an shiny beads from th local craft store.
Now time to start the second Monkey and swatching for a top-down cardigan using this pattern. i need something just easy to work on for a little bit. And my Omi requested another washcloth so i need to start that too!
If that’s not enough, i finally bought some cream colored fabric that i will use to practice some embroidery stitches on and turn it into a booklet of the the stitches as i learn them.
