Mindy's Stole - Part 6
I've gotten a little farther along on Mindy's Stole, but I have to admit that most of the last few days have involved a sock and finishing up the Christmas decorations (all decorated as of yesterday!). This part of the stole is obviously waiting for blocking to show what its really about anyway, so in order to distract from the pink blob in the picture, I will answer questions from the comments yesterday and show you a sweater that I'm thinking of attempting to figure out (after Mindy's stole is finished, of course):
Judy asked yesterday, "...what the heck is that big plastic thing next to Finn? Looks like a dog Tardis (Dr Who)!" Well, Judy, its been a while since I've seen Dr. Who - all I remember was a REALLY long striped scarf to be honest - but Finn is standing next to his crate AKA His Happy Place (our name, not his). Its such a horrible color of tan - its like the manufacturers tried to find some neutral color that would work everywhere and it really doesn't look good anywhere. We stuck it under the bar on the island in the kitchen so he'd be centrally located and it keeps it out of the way.
Ginny of the comments writes,"I just found your blog and since I can't find an email link to you....I am interested in the mystery shawl series you are starting at the beginning of 2007.." Welcome to the blog Ginny, but I'm not starting a mystery shawl series at the beginning of 2007. I have promised a Mystery Stole 3, but at this point I have no idea when I'll do it since I have no idea what the design will be. I've been very careful not to give even a potential start date on this one. Renee of Bo Peep's Wool Shop did the Mystery Shawls, but I was under the impression that since she's begun the Shawl Club, that she was done with Mystery Shawls. Does anyone else know of someone beginning a mystery shawl series in 2007?
Finally, I ran across this sweater in a catalog earlier in the fall and have been thinking about it ever since. Its knitted in cotton here and I would probably work it in wool, but it looks like to me it wouldn't be too hard to do my own version of it. I love the ribbing lines and I think it would be flattering as well as a fairly simple design. What do you think?
