Mystery Stole 2 - beginning


Mystery Stole 2 - beginning
Originally uploaded by Sophie_vf.
Yes, in my obsession for knitting lace I got caught up in the excitement of the Mystery Stole 2 knitalong. Designed by Melanie of Pink Lemon Twist, the pattern will be released as six "clues" over six weeks. Nobody knitting it knows what it will look like till the end of the six weeks - but Melanie designed the beautiful Leda's Dream as the original Mystery Stole, so I think faith is well placed.

I know, super geeky. But enormously diverting!

This is in Knitpicks Shadow laceweight merino, color Lost Lake, on size 3 Boye needlemaster circs

Wow, this seems to be a very exciting thing to do - the beginnings of the stole look so gorgeous already, can't wait to see what the finished project will look like! Happy Knitting!

Oh, that's looking very nice! I haven't started mine yet, because other things have happened to occupy my time. But I have plans on working it; I love doing lace! This looks like it's going to be an interesting and easy knit!

Love your tank too... and yes, that little bit of extra stockingnette is very much needed! hehe
