The Mystery is Solved


Since the final set of directions for the Mystery Stole was released last Friday, I thought I'd show a picture of what it looks like. This is obviously one end of it (the other end looks remarkably the same). I just love it! I love the way the patterns look. I love the way the Alpaca Cloud drapes over my shoulders. I love the pale grey color of it and I love the little wave edging on it. As you can see its a pretty traditional looking design. All of the lace patterns I used are old, traditional patterns. Here's another picture with a closeup of the edging:

Can you tell how much I love this stole? I hung it over the footboard to our bed to get the picture (it has to have a dark background or it just doesn't show up) and its so lightweight I had to turn off the ceiling fan to get it to stop waving in the wind. There were almost 600 people in the Mystery Stole Along group last time I checked and I hope they like the stole as much as I do!

Wow, great job! I think I am the only one who never started this project. Bad timing for me personally, but seeing yours makes me wish I had done it! Fabulous work.

Now I'm really inspired to finish. I was slowly knitting clue 3 but now I'm anxious to make major progress. It's sooooo pretty. Thanks for hosting this stole along...Will there be another?

Forgot to add to my previous post...I also started reading Daughter of the Forest when I began the stole. Really enjoyed the book.

I am still on Clue Three - but seeing the completed stole has encouraged me to get knitting.

Thank you for the adventure.

Thank you sooo much Melanie! This has been such a fun experience and an enjoyable pattern to work :)

I love the pattern so much that I want one for myself - as this one is destined for my sister - so I will definately be making another!

Beautiful work, great job! Please do another in the near future! :)

Thanks so much for having the knit along. It is the first for me and it has helped very much. Your pattern is great and the finished stole you did is beautiful. I am slow as molasses but I will get it done. Of course it doesn't help that I am now in two more KALs. It's contagious isn't it? Thanks again, you did a great job.
