Love At First Stitch
We're Mystery Stole-ing here at Chez Insanity. And having a mighty fun time. Here are the first 74 rows which leaves 26 more rows for Clue 1.
If you haven't joined Mystery Stole 3, well what are you waiting for? Can 4,000 people be wrong? Melanie is closing sign-ups in 2 days! OK, so maybe my picture isn't the best advertisement for this pattern but I was too lazy to pin it all out.
This is a bit more accurate picture of the actual color of the yarn. I'm using Fearless Fiber's 100% merino laceweight in the "Miracle" colorway. As in, "It'll be a Miracle if I finish this stole." On size US 5's. I think I've got a good balance between the yarn overs and the stockinette portion with this size. Ha. What a crock. Truth be told, I did't even bother to swatch. I just pulled out the needles that were the pointiest.
Is this tiny fellow adorable or what? It's an Owl Finch. When I was in PetsMart on Sunday they had some of these and I fell in love with their cute little faces. They come from Australia. If I'd known this before I could have asked Valerie to pick me up one when she was there visiting. As opposed to spending $95.00 which is what PetsMart wants for them. Plus the little Care Sheet for them said they prefer to be in groups. That's a pretty pricey colony. Oh well, finches and Andy would probably be a really bad idea, anyway.
Besides, I want a bunny.
Happy Fourth of July to all the Americans and happy hump day to the Canadians!
