Frostrosen is Coming Around the Far Turn. It's Thundering Towards the Finish Line...


Well, as much as lace can thunder towards the finish line that is. See the picture? See the right half of the shawl? It's not on the needles! I've knit the edging across half of the top of the shawl and now I just have to knit it across the other half and Kitchener stitch the two edgings together. I hope to get it finished today, but that will depend on the Mystery Stole group.

You see, today we took the stole offroading - where no stole has gone before. Today's clue started short rows. In lace. Why would I do that? Because I can! Bwah ha ha!

Of course that means there may be a few questions...

Have a great weekend!

Frostrosen is almost finished and it's going to be a beauty.

Oh and the MS3 theme is brilliant! I studied ballet for 20 years and have danced in Swan Lake twice. I love the way you've intrepreted the ballet's story into your lace design. I'm having trouble visualizing how the short rows are going to work, but I'll take it on faith and knit on! Thanks Melanie for sharing this with us.

Frostrosen is lovely, and the Mystery Stole is fantastic. I'm way behind so it won't be a mystery while I knit it, but it's going to be lovely, I'm sure. Thanks again for all the work you put in, and for sharing your design talents in such a fun way. I'll definitely be in MS4, if you decide you can stand the stress of doing it again.

I always knew that lace designers had a mean streak! Short rows?? I'm glad I haven't worked my way up to one of your creations yet. ;)

Are you on Ravelry? I only ask so I can find out the specs on your shawl - it's beautiful. (so is MS3, but don't tell anyone I told you...)

Can't wait to see the blob turn into the thing of beauty I expect it will!!

I just finished clue 5 - I loved knitting it and think the feather pattern is gorgeous.

Already impatient for clue 6....
