It's yet another hasty, wonky shot, but at least I got a picture of the Mystery Stole progress up before the next clue is out on Friday. I admit it looks pretty dull and nasty in this shot, but it's very nice in person. I'll take some good shots at the end.
This is through clue 4. It clearly is barely even smoothed out, let alone stretched at this point. It measures about 18 inches wide and 50 inches long so far.
It has been an easy knit so far, but a little hard on the old eyes. I took a wise knitter's advice and put a white cloth behind it while I'm knitting. WOW - I'm astonished at what a difference that makes!
I'm getting a bit weary of navy blue, so I've been thinking about starting a new project in this while I wait for Clue 5:
It's yet another cone of fabulous Zephyr (50/50 merino/silk). After Frost Flowers and Leaves, which took (according to the pattern) a whopping 3600 yards, you'd think I would want to knit with something else. The MS2 is a sensuous knit in Kidsilk Haze (70/30 mohair silk), but gimme Zephyr!
Yet another shawl? Yep. I think so. At 89 degrees this morning, you'd think the only cone I'd be looking at is one with some ice cream in it. I was planning to start something other than another lace shawl, but somehow I keep putting off knitting those wool sweaters right now.
Off to dig up a suitable pattern...
