Mystery Stole 4 Pre-block

Last night in Baltimore – have an 8 am start tomorrow here, then an 8 am start on Friday in Florida. Getting seriously tired of hotel rooms. Also unfortunate – I sprained my ankle on Sunday night when I got back to this hotel from Rhinebeck (I got peer pressured into going to the ER [...]

Avoided more plane Mystery Stole knitting

Knocked out clue 5 (twice, but only pictured once): Someone once asked me (Carol, maybe?) why a control freak like myself likes knitting something I have never seen, and I have to say, it’s because I’m done for the week. There’s no possible way for me to do any more, as I don’t have the [...]

Couch Day

It’s going well so far. :) I finished up the first re-knit of Clue 3 last night: And with a break for a run today, finished Clue 4 (for the first time): Now I just have to knit Clues 3 and 4 one more time. I’ll do what I can today, but tomorrow I have [...]

Clue 3 Error

So, I’m kind of an idiot – I blindly knit Clue 3 (twice!) without noticing a glaring error on the second row of the chart. I also had no internet access over the weekend, so I missed all of the chatter discussing said error. Which is how I ended up with an error that I [...]

Clue 2

I finished the two sides of Clue 2 last night in my hotel room: I think we might be done with the beading, and I’m actually relieved. It was getting a lot to handle, especially since I keep on insisting on working on this on airplanes (there are quite a few little beads sprinkled around [...]

Clue 1 Finished

I had an out and back trip to Maryland yesterday (morning flight there, full day of work, evening flight home). Makes for a long day, and the only knitting time I got were the flights themselves (even though my co-worker drove a lot!), but I got the second Clue 1 finished (I’m knitting both sides [...]

Totally worrying about this too much

So I went with popular vote (thanks for all of the input! :) ) and cast on this morning with the sea foam lined crystal: Then I was wracked with doubt, and I made a swatch with the amethyst lined light blue: I think I’m sticking with the crystal, but this whole thing is driving [...]

Need opinions!

I can’t choose which beads to use for Mystery Stole 4… Help! Sea foam lined crystal or amethyst lined light blue? Here’s someone who has knit the first clue (so you can see the way the beads are used) – Ravelry link. I am paralyzed by indecision.
