Mystery Stole - Slowly but Surely Getting There

I actually got some work done on my Mystery Stole 2 yesterday! When I started this knitalong, I kept ahead of the group because I knit from the charts that I was posting to the group. By knitting ahead, I was able to make sure the charts were correct. Of course, since this stole is knit from the center out, each direction, I still have to finish the second half. I'm almost halfway through the second half (3/4 of the way done), but my chart knitting time is practically non existent right now. I'm trying to figure out some ways to get more work done on this and not neglect anyone around here (specifically puppies who think that trying to sneak upstairs to find the cat is a wonderful idea). I know that several people have asked when I'll have the pattern written up and available for sale, but all I can say is that I'm working on it when I can but I don't want to give a definite date at this point. Hang in there, I really am working on it! If Finn could go to Kindergarten with Caleb, Ramius and I could finish this up pretty quickly...

I have a good puppy occupying toy to suggest: kong makes a ball in which you can stick a small treat. The dog spends a long time playing with and chewing the ball trying to get the treat out. My dog spent so much time doing this, that it actually wore her out and she would take a long nap afterwards. It saved a lot of children's toys and my sanity.

My dog even works on it after she gets the treat out, hoping for more. She plays with it so long and hard, that she has to take a long nap afterward. It saves a lot of children's toys, and my sanity.

Why must the cat and puppy not meet? When my sister's dog came the cats almost attacked the puppy, and had to be sequestered. They eventually figured out to ignore the puppy if they wanted free access to the condo. He eventually figured out that they didn't want to play.

Hi Melanie,

will you reopen the group again? I would love to knit the mystery stole, but I can tell that I'll need a lot of advice on this one, so reading group comments would be very helpful.

Best regards from Denmark
