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?

Those are beautiful sweaters! I look forward to seeing your version. It is nice to see sweaters with some sort of "shape".

P.S. thanks for the Mystery Stole 2006. I really enjoyed the project and get lots of compliments when I wear it!

As for the sweaters : there is a very similar one in new Debbie Bliss book Out of town (you can see it here : http://www.kangaroo.uk.com/catalogue/pages.php?stId=1241&tId=18).

I love the stoles! Just need to knit them now :D.

Ps.: My doggy's crate is completely wire ...

I love the sweaters and would certainly buy a pattern if you develop one for a similar sweater. Those are awesome and certain to be flattering to just about every possible body type--including mine! (My Mystery Stole 2 is complete and magnificent but not yet blocked...I have a blocking block at present, because it's not the only FO that's not really QUITE FO.)

Oooh, i love the sweater. You'll look fab in it. I might look fab in it as well, however I would never get it knit. I HATE ribbing and that's just too much for me. :-)

This sweater is similar to the sweater I told you about in the Jan. CREATIVE KNITTING page 20. This pattern isn't ribbing. :)

Oh, that sweater looks great!

Mindy's shawl is looking good, can't wait to see the finished product. And count me in for the mystery stole - whenever it happens!

the sweater looks a bit like grumperina's jaywalker sock. the neck might need a steek but it would work in wool. it looks like the increases are hidden in the purl stitches before the center ridge. a 3x3 rib would stand out well.

Another Mystery Stole?

I guess I better hurry up and finish MS2 then, lol.

The sweater is pretty, but looks kind of hard with all that ribbing. Can't wait to see how you do it.
