mystery stole 3

I have joined the Mystery Stole 3 knitalong ! I am so excited - selected a nice yarn to knit it 'Thermal Rheuma wolle' in cream. My local yarn store has absolutely no lace yarn, and this was the only thing that qualified. It is used to knit thermal underwear, but really is a nice yarn. The only thing that worries me slightly is that this Mystery Stole will involve bead knitting. The knitalong will start at the end of June, so this will be a nice summer project.

In the meantime I started a pair of socks, with some yarn from my secret pal 9. The pattern was a gift from Jane in Texas, and is called 'travelling companion', by Mary Dominski, a nice combination of broken rib and cables. This sock yarn is really superfine, so I am knitting it on 2mm bamboo needles. The picture is a bit darker then in real life, the yarn is a semisolid of hues of dark burgundy.

Unfinished objects : the lizard ridge afghan, and Hanne Falkenberg's 'Ballerina'. Both will probably get finished eventually, but most likely after summer.
