Thanks to Ravelry, I am excited to start some new projects and finish some old ones! I joined the Mystery Stole 3 knit along and ordered my yarn and beads today. I ordered some charcoal grey Jaggerspun zephyr wool-silk laceweight yarn and some grey shiny beads, as well as a teeny tiny crochet hook to string the beads with. I’ve never used beads in my knitting before, but I’m excited to start! I got some other colors to go with some other laceweight yarn I have in the stash (just what I need, a new kind of stash!).
Don’t worry though, I haven’t forgotten about my WIP’s. The mystery stole knit-along starts on June 29th, so I want to finish Alpine Lace by then, and then get back to the bridal knot shawl (finally). I also have some Christmas ideas in the works, so there’s plenty coming 🙂
