Saturday my yarn arrived from WEBS for the MysteryStole3 knit along. The pattern suggestion was to use black or white, but neither color appealed to me so I went with Copper instead. It is a blend of wool and silk. There are lots of browns and earth tones in my wardrobe so should I actually finish this then it will be wearable. And sticking with the whole scheme I opted for real copper beads as well. They are subtle and surprizingly lightweight which should prevent them from being too flashy (I’m not a glitzy person) or from stretching the shawl.
I’m about a week behind the crowd, only being about 3/4 of the way through Chart A of clue 1. Catching up isn’t a concern though. I’d rather go slow and not have to send this to the frog pond. The last time I looked over 6,000 knitters had joined this KAL. It will be interesting to see the various color and bead choices and to see how they effect the outcome of these shawls.
This now makes FOUR WIPs. I need to finish these up before starting something else. Darn that knitting ADD anyway.
