My own Mystery Stole 3 offering

Here it is, my swatch for the Mystery Stole 3 that Melanie is preparing us for!

I knit this over the weekend while at the lake (see previous post). It is from my fine white Corriedale roving, all from farm raised sheep. Spun and plyed on my Louet S45, knit on my new Addi Turbo Lace needles. I love the look and feel, and am just about finished with my first full bobbin ~ hopefully will have yardage complete before the first clue day (this Friday, June 29) Once I have seen the clue, I may decide to go up one needle size for a more open look. Or I could block harder (grin)

This is also part of my Journey To A Shawl project.

I love the swatch resting on the lavender. You and a few others have helped me make a wish list a mile long for when we have a place of our own. My husband thinks I am going crazy! Your yarn looks great!

Beautiful! My current project is nowhere near as lovely -- a pair of green socks for my Honey. :-) But they are made with love. Can't wait to see how your project turns out!

Cary, you're pictures are just beautiful! Thank you for sharing them :) Eli and I are settling in to Tennessee life now. I've been away from bloggerland for awhile, adjusting to our new life. I never thought I'd have to play the role of single mother, but many before have done it and many behind will follow (unfortunately). He is doing SO GOOD here! He hasn't had any more medical/eating problems since we've been here- I think his stress was manifesting itself through the eating problems...here he has trees and goats and horses and mountains and rivers...We made it at last :)

I hope you are doing well- I miss you, and I haven't started my Boudica socks yet *hanging head in shame*...but they are on the list!

Hope to hear from you :)
