In between clues

Don’t get me wrong, the Mystery Stole is not running my life…but…those first 100 rows are so beautiful I can’t wait for the next 100 on Friday. So until then, what should I do?? What should I work on?
Last night I dug through my cupboards/drawers/stash to find something I could pick up & possibly finish by Friday. I found a sweater back I had started for George but it wasn’t wide enough. It’s long enough to make a Starsky type cardigan for myself though! I cast on the sleeves last night & with only 30 sts on size 10.5 needles I just might have a finished cardigan by Friday! We’ll see.

In my beachbag I have the Orangina by Glampyre. I am using size 4 Addi lace needles and Brown Sheep Cotton Fine yarn in Orange, of course.


You can see that I decided to do beads on the Orangina. I am very happy with that decision. I don’t know how many rows I will do them on. It may end up only that one row on the top edge. Nice & Simple.

Julie has had 2 of the Lantern Moon Fish Messenger Bags for a while & I was just waiting for someone to snatch up that green one so I didn’t have to buy it. But, none of you obliged so I was forced, forced I tell you, to buy it!

That’s the chevron scarf hanging out of it. It has 2 pair of socks (the class socks & Tyler’s tiger socks) in it as well. I am hoping to have all 3 done in the next week as well. The scarf I am in no hurry to finish other than just to be done with it.
The bag is roomy, has lots of pockets outside as well as a zippered pocket inside. I think it’s going to be a fantastic bag!

  2. And, how is your clue 1 coming along?? Anytime to knit on it rather than keep up on the yahoo group? I hope so for your sake!

    And I have a tendency to eat up all my bandwidth by the end of the month, sorry ’bout that ;o)

  3. Ooohh, I love that messenger bag. I’m glad you bought it, cuz I was thinking about it. Maybe she’ll get some more, then I can think some more. It looks perfect for the beach. Your mystery stole is looking beautiful, too, and I can see the beads in the photo. I’m sure they’ll pick up little glints of light to catch your eye.

  4. I finally figured out I had to create a Blog Harbor account to leave a comment (duh). Anyway, I’m enjoying your prolific knitting blog. I have always knitted and crocheted and now that I am retired, I have plenty of time to get into trouble. Recently I have been making lots of blankets for Project Linus, Sacramento Chapter. A group of us meet once a month in Rescue and the big perk (Bud loves this one) I get free yarn from them to make blankets with. NOW… you have my interest peaked with this mystery project… – Cindy W.

  5. Cindy, you should have been able to leave an anonymous comment with your info without having to open a blogharbor account. It’s confusing on this host but I sure do love my options on my blog.

    Anywho…our weekly knit group has done some blankets for battered womens & family shelters here in town. Mostly made of free yarn! And on our hobby knitting machines. They were so fast & fun to make.

    And yes, the mystery stole is one fun project! Each week we get a 100 row chart to knit. We don’t know the theme or have any clue what the pattern will end up looking like. That is the fun of the ‘mystery’ part of it. And, it’s just gorgeous lace!

  6. I so love that messenger bag, and sure am glad that I haven’t run across one of those that was just begging to go home with me… ūüėČ I guess these things run in families, do they not? Love ya sis!

  7. I won’t even go into the bag collection I have! You are totally right about it running in families, I remember dad always questioning mom on why she needed a new purse when that one was just fine. And he did finally give up on the shoe battle, didn’t he? Now he has to force her to get new ones (usually expensive) so her feet don’t hurt her. Won’t that be nice??

  8. Looks like you’re managing to keep busy, and it’s already Tuesday. That clue will get there before you know it!

  9. Ali told me she leaves comments without having an account, so I’ll try this again without signing on. I may want to do a knitting blog someday and will probably try blogharbor anyway.
