Progress but nothing really done

The Unmentionables are getting close to being wearable….

I am so excited to have these done! Just in time for summer beach excursions with the kids.

Yesterday Tracy & I were discussing the upcoming Mystery Stole 3 when my yarn showed up! Sarah’s Yarns shipped the day I purchased & not only was it a great price & got here fast but it smells wonderful too! I have beads also, from Craft Essentials, size 8/0 in a dark burgundy. I have more beads coming from the Beadwrangler so I haven’t fully decided yet which yarn with which beads.

 I did my gauge swatch & before I realized it I had it done & ripped out most of the way before took a photo of it. Here is what is left… zephyr in steel on size 5 needles…

I also pulled out last years Mystery Stole, Scheherazade, that is not finished. I have clues 5 & 6 plus the edging left to do.

I would love to have this done before June 29 when the MS3 starts but I am just not sure I can pull that off.

Another thing I quickly finished up yesterday was a soap sock that was originally going to be another Peaches & Creme Ballband washcloth. I lost patience & needed a new soap sock.

I love my Highland Aromatics Goat’s Milk bars in these soapsocks.

Overall, I am hoping that the next week I will have a number of finished projects to show-off.

    I’ve been on the fence about Mystery Stole 3, and now I’m seriously considering signing up for it. You’re such an enabler! : )
    The Unmentionables are starting to look like underpants, which is a good thing. Also, last year’s stole looks great, which adds to the temptation.
    Now why didn’t I think of a soap sock? My bar of soap always gets all gunky and gooey… not any more! I’m knitting one of those today!

    Those Unmentionables… I actually am starting to really like them!! Out of that cotton, I think they are the perfect Santa Barbara type of clothing. They are cute! And I think that Zephyr is perfect for the shawl.

    Oh my, if you only knew how many projects I really have going on at the moment! I have been pretty good about starting & finishing projects lately. That is out of character for me. I am a start-aholic for sure!
