I'm no further forward in guessing the theme of Mystery Stole 3 but I love it. This is how it looks at the end of clue 3.
It measures 27" x 16" - rough measurements because I haven't pinned it out.
Next week the clue will be 135 rows instead of the 50 we had this last time and then there won't be another clue until Friday 3rd August when the theme will be revealed.
I've been thoroughly enjoying knitting this stole partly I think because of the enforced waiting between sets of instructions so that there's no time to get bored with it. And it's funny but since I started this I've not really wanted to knit anything other than lace although I *have* managed to finish off these socks that were almost complete before the stole
These are knitted in Blue Moon Fibre Arts Socks That Rock - Medium weight merino colour "Spring Fling". This is the first time I've used this yarn because it has to be ordered from America but it won't be the last. It was lovely to knit with, feels lovely on and there is an astonishing range of colours available. I've been very jealous of the lucky people who belong to the STR yarn club - closed to new members now and I'm just waiting for next years subscriptions to open.
Here are pictures of the toe and heels.
and these Stroud Wool Socrates SuperSock from Violet Green's April Sock Club yarn
and Montego Bay Scarf that fitted nicely into time between stole knitting
The pattern is in Interweave Knits Summer 2007.I used Handmaiden Sea Silk colour Capri on 5.5 mm needles. It was a very fast and relaxing knit so much so that I've started another in Handmaiden Sea Wool colour Pinata.
Can't wait until Friday......unfortunately we'll be spending four hours on a train going to Edinburgh on Saturday early in the morning for a wedding later that day and then the same journey back again on Sunday. I shan't be able to concentrate enough to work on the stole and on Tuesday we're setting off to France via Kate's in London so that means I shan't get started until Thursday at best. Hmmm....I know it's not a race......
